Mason Jar Food Gift
Fill a mason jar using my chai drink mix recipe, so that your can enjoy warm homemade chai flavored beverages.
The dry mix can be added to hot water, black tea or coffee and it makes a great gift!
Mixing it with water is delicious for kids or anyone who isn’t in the mood for caffeine.
The word ‘chai’ means tea, so it is perfectly appropriate to add the mixture to a cup of black tea.
Those of us who love a good chai latte will enjoy adding this mix to coffee.
The spice combination is good, whichever way you choose to drink it.
The mix makes a lovely holiday gift as is or as part of a gift basket.
You can include a mug along with a box of tea or bag of coffee.
Chai is lovely to drink, when you are having a quiet evening alone .
Or you can have it as a special treat as you are celebrating the holidays.
I use a canning funnel, when I’m pouring the mix into the mason jar.
This way the mix gets into the jar instead of onto my countertop.
When I make my chai drinks, I whisk the dry mix into the hot liquid.
The whisk takes care of any little lumps, so that my beverage is just perfect.
Make the mix for yourself or give it as a gift!
