Recipe: Chai Tea Mix

Okay, this is not for Chai purists.  It's an instant Chai mix, just add hot water.  But it's really good!  Makes a nice gift, too, if packaged in a pretty jar or tin.

1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 cup powdered non-dairy creamer
1 cup powdered non dairy creamer in
   French Vanilla flavor
2-2 1/2 cups white sugar (matter of taste here)
1 1/2 cups unsweetened instant tea (I use decaf so
   my kids can drink it in the evening)
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
And if you like extra spice:
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper

In a large bowl, mix everything together.  Then in a blender or food processor, blend one cup at a time until you have a fine powder.

To serve, stir two heaping tablespoons into a mug of piping hot water.  Inhale and sip!
