Homemade Chai Tea Mix

If you're into making homemade herbal and spiced teas then I recommend you make a chai mix! Super easy-to-make, it'll enable you to enjoy a fabulous cup of chai anytime you like.

Makes about 4 tbsp

1 tbsp green cardamom pods
1 tbsp cinnamon pieces (as small as possible)
1 tbsp dried orange peel
2 tsp mix of black and white peppercorns
1 tsp whole cloves
1 tsp ginger powder

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Add everything to a pestle and mortar and grind as best as you can (The idea is to open the cardamom pods and to break down the ingredients a little so the flavours infuse)


  • If you prefer, add the ingredients to your grinder and very coarsely grind by pulsing the button. (Don't grind too fine)

That's all there is to it!

Store in an airtight container out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

How to Toast and Grind

Dry toasting and grinding spices is the key to getting the most flavour out of your ingredients and into your home cooking...

Step 1: Add your whole spices to a dry pan over a low to medium heat and whilst stirring or shaking the pan, lightly toast them for a few minutes. When you can really smell the aromas and they start to darken, they're ready.

Step 2: Let them cool and then grind.

Step 3: For a finer blend, put them through a sieve before combining with any ground ingredients and herbs.
