Pumpkin Spice Chai Mix

Pumpkin Spice Chai
Settling down in the evening with a hot drink and reading a good book or knitting is one of my favorite things to do.  I like to enjoy the flavors of the season.  Recently, I made some  Pumpkin Spice Chai mix. A delicious warm drink that is spiced with pumpkin pie spices and other spices that gives chai is delicious and satisfying taste.

In a large bowl I mixed together some unsweetened tea, sugar, non fat dry milk, non-dairy creamers, pumpkin pie spice, and some other spices.  After the ingredients were mixed together, I put the chai mix into a food processor and processed it until it had a powdery consistency.  I store my mix in an airtight container.

When ready to use, I usually add 2 tablespoons of the mix to a mug of hot water.  For an extra creamy chai, you can use hot milk.
