It’ll warm you right up…

Creating a spiced chai mix with a little extra kick is easier than you think. A mix of common aromatic spices like ginger, nutmeg, and cloves and fiery cayenne pepper powder stoke the flames. This is one chai mix that’ll no doubt warm you through and through. Best of all, this recipe creates a powder that’ll keep. You can make a batch and enjoy it for weeks – or even months – to come, just a few spoonfuls and hot water each time. But our guess is the mix doesn’t last quite that long in your house.
