Christmas is now less than a week away! If you’re like me, you still have a few loose ends that need to be taken care of (or is that only me?!). If you still need some ideas for co-workers, friends, etc., I can help! This spiced chai mix is perfect for gifts. It packs easily and goes well with a mug and a batch of biscotti or cookies for a homemade gift!

Like fudge, I find myself drinking more chai around the holidays than any other time of year. It is one of my favorite drinks to enjoy on a chilly afternoon or evening. After being introduced by my friend to this vanilla chai mix, I’ve been hooked. Because we drink so much of it, I wanted to mix it up a bit for a little different flavor.

This spiced chai mix is a bit spicier than the vanilla mix and has a combination of regular and brown sugar. If you aren’t sure about the amount of spice, feel free to cut it back a bit. Just make sure to use the combination of sugars. The brown sugar adds a great caramel-like flavor!

    Love this idea! I have a friend who absolutely adores chai — in fact, we constantly bring in new flavors to share during our office “tea time” (also known as the afternoon doldrums when we both get very sleepy!). Saving this for next year!

    I’m assuming you used ground (powdered) ginger in your mix? I just know there’s a huge difference in the amount of ginger flavor that comes out when i use powdered ginger in lieu of fresh.
