This is a seasoning mix for a quick, spicy chai tea recipe. Unlike most recipes, the seasoning mix can be prepared ahead and stored in the refrigerator until needed.
Also, neither the spices nor the tea are cooked. Just add this to any brewed black tea. A warning: it is very spicy, and the amounts of the mix can be adjusted to personal taste.

Yield: 1 batch
Mix all ingredients well. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator.
Brew a full-flavored black tea (like Assam, Keemun, or Yunnan) extra strong.
To drink hot, add 1 Tablespoon (or more to taste) to cup, pour in tea, and mix.
To drink iced, pour tea over ice cubes in tall glass, add 1 Tablespoon (or more to taste) and stir. For iced tea, it is helpful to allow
tea to brew for about 5 minutes, and allow to cool a bit before pouring over
