CIJ day 20 / jour 20

1 Cup Instant Tea (unsweetened)
2 Cups Tang

1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl or large sealing bag; mix well.
Serve 2 TBS mix in a mug of hot water.

Instant Vanilla Chai Mix (Source : )
1½ cups instant unsweetened tea powder (I use Nestea.)
2 cups granulated white sugar
1 cup non-fat instant dry milk powder
1 cup plain non-dairy creamer powder
1 cup French vanilla or vanilla non-dairy creamer powder
1 tablespoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
½ teaspoon ground black pepper (This is optional, but makes the chai spicier.)
¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg
⅛ teaspoon ground cloves

Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk until evenly combined. Process 1 cup at a time in pulses in a blender or food processor until it is a fine powdery consistency much like powdered sugar. Wait until the dust in the blender or processor dies down before removing the lid, then spoon into airtight containers for storage. Repeat until all of the mixture has been finely powdered.
Tightly covered, this mix is good for 6 months to a year, stirring every so often to prevent clumping.

For Gift Giving:
Divide the powdered mix between small 4 or 8 ounce jars. Label jars with instructions on how to prepare the chai.
