In a coffee grinder or small food processor, finely grind the cardamom, peppercorns, cinnamon sticks, cloves, vanilla bean and star anise in two batches. Place the mixture in a bowl and add the black tea. The chai mix will keep for 3 months in an airtight container at room temperature.
Fill a little glass jar with the mix, attach a gift tag and give as a gift.
Note for chai tea mix label:
Bring 1 cup (250 ml) of milk and 1 tbsp of chai tea mix to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Cover and infuse for 5 minutes. Strain the chai through a sieve and enjoy.
