Chai Tea Mix....made with love from home

I'm getting ready to send out a little care package to my sons who live and attend college clear across the nation from me.  Thought I'd share what I'm packaging up just in case anyone else is interested.  This would be a wonderful gift for a neighbor or friend or just make some up for yourself!

Chai Tea Mix

2 C sugar
2 C unsweetened instant tea
1 1/2 C powdered French Vanilla nondairy creamer
1 1/4 C powdered nondairy creamer
1 1/4 C packed brown sugar
3/4 C nonfat dry milk powder
2 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 1/4 tsp. ground cardamon
1 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. white pepper

*Additional ingredient (for each serving)
1 C hot 2% (or your desire) milk

In a large bowl, combine the first 12 ingredients.  In a blender, cover and process tea mixture in batches until powdery.  Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 6 months.
To prepare one serving of chai tea:  Place 1/4 C mix in a mug.  Add hot milk; stir until combined.

    1. Suzyk727----instant tea can be found in ANY grocery store, usually on the coffee/tea aisle. Look for a jar--you will see either (pre) sweetened or unsweetened; it's a loose powder that is mixed with hot or cold water vs. tea bags. Hope that helps!
