Bring on all of the chai flavored recipes this fall! Whether you are a spicy chai tea person, a sweet chai person, or a dirty chai tea latte kind of human, this chai spice mix is delicious and totally customizable. First things first..

What are the Chai spices?

  • cardamom
  • allspice
  • cinnamon
  • cloves
  • ginger

This chai spice mix is on the spicier side. We like our chai with a bite rather than a sweet spice mix so we added a little extra ground ginger. If you love yourself a sweet chai, try taking out some ginger and adding more cinnamon or even a teaspoon of coconut sugar or brown sugar. Have no shame either way. The taste buds want, what the taste buds want. DO YOU FEEL ME?

We love mixing up our own chai spices so that we have chai spice ready in the pantry whenever we’re craving a chai tea latte or one of our favorite Fit Foodie Finds chai recipes. Yes, we have a bunch!  Check them out.
