Crafty Christmas: Chai Concentrate

This may seem like a slightly odd gift but if you know someone who like a good cup of chai tea and need a quick last minute gift then it is just the ticket!

Buy some good black tea and then simply make up a batch of chai concentrate, find a pretty air-tight jar to store it in, add a bit of ribbon and frippery and a label with how to store/use. If you are feeling extra generous throw in a nice teacup and saucer and a terrific teaspoon!

Chai Concentrate

You will need:
  • 1 tin of condensed milk (397g)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch of ground black pepper
Make it!

1. Combine all ingredients and stir until well mixed.

2. Store your chai concentrate in the refrigerator in an air-tight jar and it will keep for up to six months (well if it lasts that long!)

3. To use: Add to 2 or 3 teaspoons, to taste, to strong black tea and stir until fully melted.

  1. That's brilliant. I'm getting my pestle and mortar out tonight, and making a batch for myself.

  2. That's a wonderful idea for a present! I would love to be given my own batch of homemade tea. I think more presents should be like this.
