My sweet sister-in-law made & gifted to me some of her homemade chai tea mix. I was thrilled, I absolutely love her Chai Tea! She even gifted it to me in a repurposed glass jar. Love!
So I used my laser printer and some regular ole shipping tape to make a fun customized label for the jar. Now my chai tea mix stands ready to whip up at a moment’s notice. What a delightful, comforting drink when it’s cold outside.
But when I shared how wonderful it tasted, the followers of my Facebook Page begged for the recipe. So I asked my SIL to share her recipe and she was happy to do it. (thanks Angela!)
The recipe she shared with me is below. There are several ingredients but it’s super quick & easy to mix up. She said when she makes it she always quadruples the recipe. That way she can make enough to gift to others and also have enough to last for herself to enjoy all year long too. She mentioned that this chai tea mix has a long shelf life.
All I know is that it’s a wonderful gift and I’m so grateful to her for gifting it to me. It’s delicious, decadent and comforting.
Love, love, LOVE!
And now, as requested, we’re sharing the recipe with you too. Enjoy!
