Chai Tea Mix

  • Preparation 10 MIN
  • Servings 5
Packed with spices like cardamom and black peppercorn, this black-tea mix is guaranteed to warm up even the most blustery December evening—all you need is a pot of hot milk and some patience.



  1. In a coffee grinder or small food processor, finely grind the cardamom, peppercorns, cinnamon sticks, cloves, vanilla bean and star anise in two batches. Place the mixture in a bowl and add the black tea. The chai mix will keep for 3 months in an airtight container at room temperature.
  2. Fill a little glass jar with the mix, attach a gift tag and give as a gift.


Note for chai tea mix label:
Bring 1 cup (250 ml) of milk and 1 tbsp of chai tea mix to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Cover and infuse for 5 minutes. Strain the chai through a sieve and enjoy.
