One thing I usually crave when it's cold or rainy outside is Chai latte!
My friend and I where all about the chai lattes last summer. I tried different brands and different chai lattes (I have discovered my fav now), but why not make your own mix?!
The awesome thing about making it yourself is that you can make it as peppery or as cinnamony as you like! (I prefer more star anise and cinnamon then pepper and ginger)What you need;
1. Crush the cardamom, star anise and cloves
2. With a meat hammer, smash the cinna-sticks
Note; Do not over crush, it's nice to see the shape of the spices
3. Mix it all together in a mason jar
When gifting, give paper tea bags (find them at a special tea store or a bamboo basket, find this in china town or asian store)
Et Voila! Your DIY Chai mix!
Serve with with boiling water or cook a spoon full of spices with milk for a Chai Latte!
