HOMEMADE CHAI SPICE RECIPE

WHAT IS CHAI SPICE?

Chai Spice comes from India. And in India, chai translates to “tea”. So when we in the United States say chai tea, we are basically saying tea tea. Oh well. In this specific case, we are making the spice blend that is mixed into a base of black tea. This blend can also be used in baking and cooking.

WHAT DOES THIS HOMEMADE CHAI SPICE MIX TASTE LIKE?

The taste of Chai Spice depends a lot on the ingredients uses, and the amounts/ratio of each ingredient. However, traditional chai spice tastes like a blend of pumpkin spice, and gingerbread spices, with just a slight peppery kick. The spice blend has a bold and distinct flavor. There aren’t too many like it.

CAN YOU MAKE HOMEMADE CHAI SPICE AHEAD OF TIME?

Absolutely! I like to have a jar of this all sorts of homemade spices and seasoning on hand for whenever the craving strikes. As a rule of thumb, when making spice blends: the earliest expiration date on your ingredients is now the new expiration date for your homemade chai blend.

CAN YOU FREEZE TRADITIONAL CHAI SPICES?

Though it is not necessary to freeze this chai spice blend, you can store it in the freezer. If you do, make sure it is an airtight, freezer-safe container to keep the original flavors fresh.
