I love Chai tea and make my own spice mix and store it in an old spice bottle right near the tea leaves. 3 parts Cinnamon to 1 part each cloves, nutmeg, ginger, allspice. All favorites of mine. Then add some powdered milk (skim- keeps the tea hot and lets you add enough to make it creamy without the calories) and sweetener (if you like) and you have a cheap, awesome cup of Chai. Yum!
