Fall is just around the corner and this Chai Tea Mix is delicious! Plus this might be what heaven smells like?

Chai Tea not only is delicious but it must be what heaven smells like!
Sometime ago I got the "2013 tasteofhome ANNUAL RECIPES" cookbook.  This is one of the best recipes I have found and adapted, just a bit.  This mix makes delicious Chai tea.  In fact, it was my lunch today along with a bowl of fresh peaches.  It makes a large batch and would be lovely given in a pretty glass jar with a ribbon as a very thoughtful gift.

Ingredients for Chai tea Mix:

2 C. sugar
2 C. unsweetened instant ice tea powder
1 1/2 C. powdered French vanilla nondairy creamer
1 1/4 C. powdered nondairy creamer
1 1/4 C. packed brown sugar
3/4 C. nonfat dry milk
2 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 t. ground nutmeg (I grated in 1 whole nutmeg.)
1 1/4 t. ground cardamon
1 1/4 t. ground cloves
1 t. ground allspice
1/4 t. ground white pepper
1/2 t. kosher salt
1 C. hot 2% milk (I used vanilla soy milk.)

Warning this smells delicious as you make it and made me smile a lot!

In a large bowl combine the first 13 ingredients.  Using a blender or food processor process the mix in batches until powdered.   Store in an air tight container in a cool dark place for 6 months.

To prepare Chai tea:  Place 1/4 C. mix in a mug.  Add hot milk and stir until combined.

Yield 32 servings, 8 cups tea mix.  Plenty for gift giving or just to share.
