I also make my own Chai tea mix. And this is great to put in a pretty jar and give as a gift.

Chai Tea Mix

1 c nonfat dry milk powder
1 c powdered non dairy creamer
1 c French vanilla powdered nondairy creamer
2 1/2 c white sugar
1 1/2 c unsweetened instant tea
2 t ground ginger
2 t cinnamon
1 t ground cloves
1 t 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. In a blender or food processor, blend 1 cup at a time, until mixture is the consistency of fine powder.

2. To serve: Stir 2 heaping tablespoons Chai tea mixture into a mug of hot water.

Can also add nutmeg, allspice, and/or white pepper for extra spice. Makes about 5 cups of powdered mix.
