Mmmmmm…Chai. The spicy aroma of this tea is so savory and just perfect! Chai is made with a few simple spices that are aromatic enough to use for other purposes – like these DIY Chai Tea Sachets.

Supplies:

Organza Bags

Spices:
Whole Black Pepper
Whole Cardamom
Whole Clove
Cinnamon Sticks
Star Anise

Choose any color of organza. We picked cream because¬†a light color won’t overwhelm the color of the spices. But you could pick any.

The next step is so easy! Literally, all you need to do is place the spices in the bag. The spices themselves are so gorgeous that the whole thing speaks for itself. We were inspired but the traditional Masala Chai recipe when choosing how much of what spice we added to the organza bags.

To each sachet we added about 5 black peppercorns, 3 whole cloves, 3 whole cardamom pods, 1 cinnamon stick, and 1 piece of star anise.

Then add them to any place that needs a fresh scent like your car, dresser drawers, restroom, purse, or office desk. The scent lasts nearly indefinitely. If you think your Chai Tea Sachet is losing scent gently squeeze the spices while they are still in the organza bag. Or you can gently scratch the surface of the spices with your fingernails.
