Chai tea spice mix

Whip up your own milky chai tea with this DIY instant chai mix. Add this mix to a mug of hot water and drop in a bag of black tea — and let the tea steep for a few minutes. For really instant chai, instead of using a tea bag, you could use 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened instant tea to your chai spice mix.
