DIY chai in a jar

Everybody loves a hot and spicy chai tea on a cold winter day! And since everyone loves DIYing, we thought, why not give someone you love a chai tea kit as a gift for Christmas? And at the same time, give them the freedom to decide when they want to drink it. How convenient is that!

What you need for the chai tea mix (gives 2 infusions):

-5 cardamoms
-10-15 peppercorns (the more peppercorn you add, the spicier the tea will be)
-1 stick of cinnamon
-5 cloves
-2 1/2 tsp black tea

You’ll need to add a little instruction sheet in your gift jar. Write the following on a piece of paper small enough to be inserted into the jar:

  • 1. Grind the spices
  • 2. Add ground spices to 1.5 cup of water. Bring water to a boil.
  • 3. Once the mixture is boiling, add 1 cup of milk. Continue heating until the mixture is boiling again.
  • 4. Pour the tea into serving cups through a strainer. Add sugar to taste.

At this point, you could be done with your Chai In A Jar gift! But if you feel more crafty, follow the instructions below and get inspiration to decorate the jar!

What you need to decorate the jar:

  • glitter, beads, fabric flowers, ribbons, paint.. anything to decorate the jar!
  • a glue gun
