My hubby is a big fan of chai tea.  He will drink multiple mugs full of it a day.  It’s so bad that he normally leaves a mug out so that he can reuse it throughout the day similar to what some might do with a water glass.  So when I ran across some recipes for homemade vanilla chai tea mix last year I decided to give it a try.  At that point, I had nothing to lose and everything to gain.  I combined a few bits and pieces from a couple of recipes and came up with something that not only did my husband like it, he seems to prefer it to most of the concentrates or mixes sold in the store.  I whip up a big batch every couple of weeks and he is free to drink to his heart’s content.  Are you ready to make some of your own?

  1. The vanilla chai tea mix is delicious! Because we are not using sugar almost at all I didn’t add it to the mix. We are adding a little bit of honey to the mug – the taste is wonderful 🙂 Thank you for that wonderful recipe!

  2. Yum, chai tea is my favorite! Pinning this for sure, and thanks so much for sharing it at my link party!

  3. I am the female version of your husband! I too just leave my mug out and reuse throughout the day, although I have tried to cut back in order to take in less calories. I love vanilla chai (not spicy chai) and have found two store varieties I enjoy, but am anxious to try this recipe!! Thank you for sharing!!!

    This recipe sounds great and I can’t wait to try it.
    One thing I’m going to add is a bit of ground cardamom – one of my favourite flavour notes in chai.
    Thanks for sharing this 🙂
