Homemade Chai Tea

Homemade Chai Mix - Max M Rasmussen
Chai tea has become extremely popular in this household. Especially in the cold months. Trying out different blends I have come up with my own mixture that I like the best. And this is it.


  • 150 g black earl grey tea


  • 15 g dried ginger (candied if you prefer a little sweeter taste)
  • 15 g cinnamon (4 rolls)
  • 8 g black pepper
  • 6 g kardemom
  • 4 g star anis (3 stars)
  • 3 g clove


Crush the spices and mix up with the tea. I use a coffee grinder, but a mortar does the job too.

I use 1 tbsp of chai for a 1 liter (1 quart) pot of tea. I let it soak for 6 minutes.


I think that just mixing five spice into tea will be pretty close too. Almost the same ingredients.
