Do you know someone who loves drinking Spicy Chai Tea? Why not make them their very own Chai Tea Bags? It's not difficult and the end result looks pretty cute - maybe as a present for Mother's Day? There is a bit of sewing involved, however it could easily be done by hand or with a sewing machine. The Chai Tea ingredients below use several traditional Indian chai spices and some of these can be taken out if they are not to your liking - this is just a basic guide.

Chai Tea Bag

Time: 45 minutes

Plain material
Colored thread
Colored ribbon

Chai Ingredients:
1 tablespoon black tea
1 knob of dried ginger root
1 stick of cinnamon
1 - 2 star anise seeds
5 cloves
8 fresh cardamon pods

Chai Ingredients

Cut the plain material into a basic rectangle shape. This can be small or quite large if you plan on making one large batch of chai tea.

Write "Chai" on the front with pencil

Write "Chai" on the front with a pencil and sew using running stitch neatly over the pencil writing in colored thread.

Sew neatly over the pencil markings

Turn the bag material inside out.
Sew up the sides of the bag, then turn it back the right way.

Sew the sides of the tea bag

Arrange your "Chai" ingredients neatly inside the bag - maybe in a clip lock bag, to keep them fresh, if they will not be consumed within a few days.
Tie the bag up with a pretty colored ribbon and it's ready to offer as a gift to mum or maybe a school teacher.
Maybe add some instructions such as "Boil these ingredients in one cup of water and mix with sugar and milk." Enjoy.
