What are the Chai spices?
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.

Thanks this was perfect
Delicious. I added black pepper and a little hot pepper for some spiciness. Thank you!
Great idea to add a little heat!
Hi, I’m about to make my first batch, how much do you add to a cup ? Thanks
OMG the chai spice and chai tea recipe is so flavorful!!! So much richer than those watered down chai teas at any coffee place. I strained my tea with a sieve but you still taste the exotic flavor of the spices!!! I love these recipes. Thank you.
If Allspice is a combination of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and we are adding Allspice to
a combo of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger and cardamom… 🤪..
Allspice is a spice made from the dried berries of a plant known as Pimenta dioica, which is a member of the myrtle family.
I love this recipe! This is my second batch and I use it every morning in my coffee. I also used it to make Chai shortbread cookies this past Christmas and they were a hit! It’s now my go too!
How much per cup or glass?
Hi how much do you add to your coffee? Thanks
Be careful with nutmeg! This recipe may have a bit too much – if someone were to go wild, make something using the whole recipe, and eat the whole thing, they could get nutmeg poisoning. I made eggnog with a whole nutmug (~5g – approx 2 tsp, same amount as in the recipe) that my wife and I split and she woke up in the middle of the night with tachycardia, irregular heartbeat, and an impending sense of doom (she was sure she was going to die), all of which are symptoms. Now, 2.5 grams shouldn’t have done that (it should take the full 5 at least) but you never know if you’ll be extra sensitive to it, plus she had been cooking with nutmeg quite a bit that week and it seems like it can build up in your system. I was unaffected but she felt terrible for a week. It could have been worse – you can require hospitalization or even die.
Hi! The serving size is 1/16 of this recipe, which is only 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg.
It was okay; but why add allspice instead of just more cinnamon, nutmeg and clove? Seems redundant since that’s all allspice is. It’s also missing the black pepper.
Allspice is actually a spice all it’s own. It looks like black pepper as it’s whole form. It’s a common misconception, one I also thought until I happened across it. It adds more dimension to the chai mix.
I was trying to recreate a chai ice cream we had for an anniversary dinner and this was a perfect match!
Glad it worked out for you!
This was just perfect! I omitted the tea bags cuz I’m doing a caffeine free month and just love this spice blend. Just what I was looking for. Thank you. <3
I would say less cardamom in the recipe as that’s all I could taste in the blend.
Really lovely and warming – I would use less ginger next time, but it’s all down to personal taste!! I used whole cow’s milk instead and it was lovely and creamy!
Thanks this was perfect and just what I needed today!
Looking to make my own Chai Latte Powder as in South Africa we are struggling to find the original powder.
Thanks. Love it.
How doi make chai tea from this spice mix?
Here’s our chai tea latte recipe — https://fitfoodiefinds.com/allergy-friendly-chai-tea-latte/
This spice blend is so good! I use it in a ton of baked goods.
love your idea for grounding the spices. I know about the these spices and I love a strong tasty
Chai any time of the day but it’s so difficult to boil all the spices together for a while and wait to
enjoy a cup of chai but with your idea, I can have it anytime and with the almond milk version looking forward to making that. So thank you very much! Love #fitfoodiefinds!!
