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.

Method
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.

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.
