“With this Chai recipe, you are preparing a chai-spiced flavored milk to add to your individual cup of tea. It's delicious, time-saving, and perfect if you want one or two cups at a time instead of a large batch of chai. Fresh grind whole spices for a much better result. I use a morter and pestle for everything but the cinnamon which I do purchase ground because I find it tough to grind at home.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place milk and spices into a very clean jar, shake to mix and chill.
  2. Let set for 24 hours for optimum flavor, though I have used it immediately because I was impatient.
  3. The longer it sits, the stronger the flavors get, and it will last for a few weeks in the fridge.
  4. Use 2-3 Tablespoons per cup with your favorite tea and sweeten with your favorite sweetener. I'm partial to green tea and honey myself.
