Chai Tea Mix

We've been making this tea mix for many years now. It's great to drink on a cold winter's night or to give as a gift. The kids even like it since it's kinda like hot chocolate.

1 cup nonfat dry milk powder                                                   
1 cup powdered non-dairy creamer                                          
1 cup French vanilla flavored powdered non-dairy creamer      
2 1/2 cups white sugar                                                           
1 1/2 cups unsweetened instant tea
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1. In a large bowl, combine milk powder, non-dairy creamer, vanilla flavored creamer, sugar and instant tea. Stir in ginger, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. 
2. In a blender or food processor, blend 1 cup at a time, until mixture is the consistency of fine powder.
3. To serve: Stir 2 heaping tablespoons Chai tea mixture into a mug of hot water. 

* Note: Yields 3 mason jars.

Add a tag and some homemade biscotti, and you have a lovely gift!
