    BakinBaby's Note:

    Watch out Starbucks, you'll be out of business in no time. When word gets out about this easy to make mix you'll be crying the blues. It makes a lovely Christmas Gift in a Jar or heck make it for yourself and drink up every morning, and skip the 5 buck trip to Starbucks. The nutmeg and allspice is an added spice hit, use as desired. Also, I've been playing around with the amount of sugar, I like the sweetness with just 1/2 cup sugar. If you don't care for the residue in the bottom of your cup, I understand you can strain it with a fine sieve. Food for thought. Note 12-21-12 (I want to thank the gal that just reviewed The Chai Tea.... she used it in her K coffee machine by just running hot water into the cup, perfect temperature for the tea mix)

      I won't rate because I didn't follow the directions exactly - My overall result was pretty good but not great. Something was missing but I couldn't put my finger on it...

      I added everything including the optional ingredients (um, since when is cardamom expensive? It's very inexpensive at any ethnic grocer), but I only used plain coffee creamer (2 1/2 cups) and added a scraped vanilla bean to the mix. All said and done, I had to do some tweeking to get it to a place that tasted right - I added the full amount of sugar plus some (since none of my coffee creamer had sugar in it, i guess?) and extra of most of the spices.

      I separated the mix into little glass jars and added half of a vanilla bean (left over from scraping) to each to slowly infuse more vanilla. They look very pretty : )

      This is really great! I haven't had the chai tea from starbuck's, but DS has developed a liking for it. So I tasted it, and I'm sending him half of the mix to have at college. Thanks for sharing your lovely mix!
