Get your vanilla chai tea fix at home in an instant with this homemade mix. Simple ingredients and a great gift too!
My apologies for my lapse in posting the past couple days. It’s been a whirlwind with the holidays and preparing to move. In fact, today marks the beginning of the big move to Ohio! One week to move everything into the new place, unpack, and get situated before my new job starts on January 12th. And do you know what the weather forecast for Columbus, OH is today? A steamy high of 18 degrees! What a stark contrast to my move to Memphis, TN where it was 115 degrees the day I moved there. Of course that was in August not January, but still interesting to note.
With the bitter cold, driving most of the day and unloading the truck, a warm cup of tea may be in order. Hopefully I will be able unpack some apparatus in order to warm water to do so. Conveniently I recently made this instant vanilla chai tea mix made from milk powder, non-dairy powdered creamer, sugar, instant tea, and spices. It smells as wonderful as it tastes and makes a great gift during these cold months.
