    Default Dunkin Donuts Vanilla Chai TEA

    I see ALOT of spiced chai tea mixes and recipes on the net...but I havent found one that is similar to DD version. It is YUM, but a habit I cant really afford to keep up much longer LOL!

    Anyone know how DD makes theres ... or a recipe that is similar?

    I just tasted my first Chai tea at a craft fair, They also had a Tastefully Simple display...wow! The chai tea was delicious You can order it online, but I'm sure it's pricy...

    I ended up buying the key lime cheese ball mix, the sun dried tomato c,b, mix and also the Spinach and herb dip mix.

    I would like to have a recipe for the Chai tea myself.
    I organize chores into catagories.
    Things I won't do now; things I won't do later; things I'll never do.

    I am off for a massage right now, but I have an oustanding Chai recipe that is a clone for Mystic Chai. I think it is very close to Dunkins. I will post it as soon as I can.

    Hey Kayce, I liked the Tastefully Simples version too...but it's also a little pricy! I would know...I've been thru 3 cans already! I also purchased the items you listed, as well as Garlic Garlic, Onion Onion, carmel creme latte (also YUM), and the go go asiago dip mix. I do love there products, and would appreciate that recipe too!!!


    Thanks Night Angel...I would LOVE the Mystic version. Thanks so much!

    This isn't the DD one but this is the one I use and it is really good

    Indian Chai
    1 1/2 cups water
    1 cup milk
    2 tea bags or 2 rounded tbsp. loose tea
    3 whole cloves (i use 8 or more)
    1//2 tsp. fennel seed
    1 inch piece of cinnamon stick (i crush mine with a hammer)
    2 cardamon pods cracked (I omit)
    2 tbsp.sugar or honey to taste

    In medium pan add spices to the water and heat. When it begins to boil add the tea. Boil for 1 minute them add milk. Bring back to a boil, turn heat down and simmer 1-2 minutes. Strain into cups to remove spices. Add sugar and or honey to you taste

    Mystic Chai Tea Mix Recipe


    1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
    1 cup powdered non-dairy creamer
    1 cup French vanilla (or I have found cinnamon flavored) flavored powdered non-dairy creamer*
    2 1/2 cups white sugar ( I always have a vanilla bean stored in some of my white sugar that I use in recipes)
    1 1/2 cups unsweetened instant tea
    2 teaspoons ground ginger
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon ground cloves
    1 teaspoon ground cardamom (can be expensive but you can make your own by buying whole cardamon seeds (cheaper) and grinding them in a coffee bean grinder till finely ground)


    Directions
    1 In a large bowl, combine milk powder, non-dairy creamer, vanilla flavored creamer, sugar and instant tea. Stir in ginger, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. In a blender or food processor, blend 1 cup at a time, until mixture is the consistency of fine powder. (This is the very important step- it helps to dissolve it better in the cup rather then be clumpy like many home made clones)
    2 To serve: Stir 2 heaping tablespoons Chai tea mixture into a mug of hot water.

    *Note:
    You may choose to omit the French vanilla creamer, and use 2 teaspoons vanilla extract powder.

    You can spice it up even further by adding 1 teaspoon nutmeg and allspice, and 1/4 teaspoon white pepper. Makes 36 servings.

    ok, I have tried ALL these recipes and not ONE comes close to Dunkin Donuts version.
    Dont get me wrong...they are all good! but not creamy smooth, or they are missing a spice or something.
    Does anyone knoe someone that works (or worked) at DD? How do they make it?
