I have been craving chai tea and decided to make my own mix at home. Don’t get me wrong, I have tried the liquid concentrate and the powder mix at the store. Instead of buying it at the store, I decided to make the mix so I can have as much as I want. I love chai tea so much and making the mix at home helps me save money!
When I made the recipe, I was out of unsweetened instant tea, so I use a tea bag with each cup I make. Thankfully, I have green tea and jasmine tea on hand.
I used our Ninja blender to blend the mix into a powder and it turned out great! I cannot wait to make many more batches.
The recipe can be found here.
Here is the recipe:
