Chai mix recipe!

1/2 cup instant tea(can use decaf)
1/2 cup nonfat dry milk
1/4 cup powdered coffee creamer
1/2 cup white or brown sugar
1 T instant vanilla pudding mix
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t ginger
1/4 t ground cloves
1/4 t ground cardamom
1/8 t(or a little less) black pepper

mix it all up w/ a fork or whisk and store in a container with tight lid. Or mix it and store in a big ziplock. To prepare: combine 3 T w/ 1 cup boiling water, stir well, sip and enjoy!
a few notes: Cardamom is the key ingredient for authentic Indian flavor. It is not cheap but will last for SEVERAL batches. You can find it after scanning the spices for a few minutes(or longer) at Walmart. Also, I've experimented w/ adding either unsweetened cocoa or Quick powder and it makes the mix even yummier, I just don't have an exact measurement. I usually at least triple this recipe cause otherwise it doesn't last long. Hope you like it!
