Chai Tea Latte Mix - 4 Ways!

One of the things I love about winter is chai tea lattes. I love my tea and I love chai (we have even brewed a Chai Porter beer before ... yum!!!). The one thing I don't love about them is how overpriced the premixes are and if you simply add milk to chai tea, it's just not quite the same. Okay, so that's two things!

Chai Tea Latte Mix - 4 Ways!

A few Christmas' ago, I decided to make a big batch of my own and to give it away to people as presents. It was so easy and I made sure to make enough for myself to enjoy too! Since that first year, I have changed up my spices a little bit to get the perfect flavor. I love the ginger and pepper to give it a little kick and the cinnamon and cardamon completely round the the flavor. It's honestly the perfect mix! I have also made different renditions of it because, well ... I get bored of the same flavor all the time! The explanation is that simple. No matter what you're feeling, regular, vanilla, cocoa or pumpkin, you can make them all yourself!

Now there's no need to pay for one at an overpriced coffee shop! As always, the best things in life are homemade!
