Homemade Spiced Chai Latte Mix

I know it's almost summer, but if you're like me, ANY SEASON is CHAI LATTE SEASON! 

 I dressed my canning jar up a little by adding 
a pretty piece of fabric over the lid
We like to go to our friends' cottage in Lakeside, Ohio ~ a Christian resort town on Lake Erie ~ and inside that precious gated community is a little sandwich/coffee/dessert shop called Ooh La La's. And believe me, the shop is just as cute as it's name. All that to say: my absolute favorite thing to get there is their spiced chai latte . . . hot. Yes, they have a cold version, but I don't care if it's 100 degrees with 100% humidity outside, I love their HOT spiced chai latte

Have you ever had a favorite taste treat like that?  But we can't always go there :'( so, improvise, we must . . .

Well, there are tons of recipes out there for lattes, but this is the one that I like. It's easy-peasy and tasty, too. 

You will need:

~1 c. coffee
~1 ts. cinnamon
~1/2 ts. cardamon
~1/4 ts. ground nutmeg
~1/8 ts. ginger
~small mixing bowl
~air-tight glass container


1) whisk to mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
2) carefully pour into air-tight glass container

To use:

#1 ~ use 1/3 c. per mug, fill with hot water, stir to mix.

#2 ~ if you are making a pot of coffee and want something with a little kick, especially on a chilly day or night or around a camp fire, add a heaping TB of chai mix per scoop of coffee to your coffee maker. A great taste treat!
