What is Chai?
If you aren’t familiar with chai, I highly recommend you try it if you love fall flavors. When I open a can of chai tea mix it smells like cinnamon and vanilla to me, but there are many more spice profiles in chai. Every chai recipe is slightly different, but here are some spices that you might see in your chai mix: black tea, ginger, cardamom, ground cinnamon, fennel, black pepper, cloves, star anise, coriander seeds, and peppercorns. Lots of intense flavors in chai spices!
