Gingered Vanilla Chai Mix
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
Combine all ingredients in a small dish with cover. Store overnight in refrigerator before using.
To make a cup of chai: brew a cup of strong, black tea such as Assam or Darjeeling.
Stir in 1 to 2 tsp of mix per 8 oz of tea.
Add milk if desired.
Store chai mix in refrigerator.
Unsweetened condensed milk can be used and sugar can be added to control sweetness.
Typically, I make tea using 1 1/2 cups of water and 2 teabags (not quite double strength) with 1 or 2 heaping spoonfuls of chai mix.

I modified my Homemade Chai Mix recipe to make a comforting cup of vanilla chai with just a touch of ginger spice.
