Chai Tea Mix Gift

I've been trying to compile some easy and inexpensive gift ideas this year. I know someone that enjoys tea, so I thought I would create some Chai Tea Mix for them.  I have shared the recipe I used below. I picked up a cute little container that they can reuse after using the mix for three dollars at Marshalls.  Then I added a tag with instructions and a ribbon to give it a little holiday spirit.

Here is the chai tea recipe that I used to create the mix:

1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 cup powdered non dairy creamer
1 cup French vanilla flavored powdered non dairy creamer
2.5 cups of white sugar
1.5 cups of unsweetened instant tea
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp ground cardamom

Blend ingredients together in a food processor or blender to combine, and then serve by adding two tablespoons of the dry mix to a mug of hot water or milk.

Not bad for a four dollar gift! Thanks so much for stopping by.
