Looking for a gift you can make ahead? This one fits you to a "tea."
cup instant nonfat dry milk
cup vanilla-flavored instant creamer (dry)
tablespoons powdered sugar
cup unsweetened instant tea (dry)
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground cardamom
teaspoon ground cloves
In small bowl, mix dry milk, creamer and powdered sugar. In another small bowl, mix all remaining ingredients. Spoon milk and tea mixtures alternately into 8-ounce jar, packing lightly.
Include these directions on package: For each serving, place 1/4 cup Chai Mix in cup. Fill with 8 ounces very hot water. For creamier chai, use half milk and half water. Makes 4 servings.
For an extra-special gift, use an iced-tea spoon to layer Chai Mix into a small flower vase.
Cardamom can be purchased either in pods, as seed or a powder. Cardamom pods hold up to 20 small seeds. This strongly fragrant spice has a slight lemony-sweet flavor with a touch of pepper and ginger.
