Chai Tea Gift Mix

This is my friend, Wardee’s, recipe. I tried it myself and it is soooo completely delicious!

I didn’t have cardamom pods so used ground cardamom, used anise oil and fennel seed together and instead of cinnamon bark used Penzey’s ground cinnamon. I also use a half teaspoon of good vanilla in each recipe. We like it with plain old sugar. My goodness it would make a wonderfully tasty gift!

Double, triple or quadruple these amounts to fit your desired container. A triple batch makes 1/2 cup of mix; a quadruple batch makes 3/4 cup of mix.

❖2 tablespoons loose black tea (Assam Breakfast, Ceylon, or English Breakfast)
❖6 cardamom pods
❖6 peppercorns (white or black or combination)
❖12 whole cloves
❖1 teaspoon anise seeds (can substitute fennel)
❖1 rounded teaspoon cinnamon bark

Crush the cardamom pods and peppercorns. Then mix all the spices and tea leaves together and place in a plastic bag. Place that in the gift container and twist-tie it closed. Roll the twist-tie up on itself. Cover the twist-tie with a ribbon. Tie it with a bow or square knot.

Print or hand-write a label:
Chai Tea
Combine 3 tablespoons of Chai Tea Mix with 4 cups milk and 2 cups water. Add 1/2 inch of ginger, peeled and cut into chunks (optional). Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Add 1/3 cup raw honey. Strain into cups. Add a sprinkle of nutmeg (optional). Serve!

Hole punch the corner. Use thread or a tiny ribbon to attach it to the bag of Chai Tea mix. Deliver!
