here. I do use an electric spice grinder. Here is what mine looks like as I grind my tea mix.
I add this mix to green or black tea leaves and steep for about 5 minutes. Works in coffee too. Drink it hot or over ice. Let it steep a little longer for cold or add more mix to the hot water. I like to squeeze fresh orange juice into my tea too.
Chai Tea Mix:
1 part whole cloves
2 parts fresh ground Ceylon Cinnamon
1 part freshly grated nutmeg
a dash of dried Ginger Root - more if you like it spicy
1/8 part ground betel nut (in other words -to taste)
1/4 part Cardamon - I buy whole cardamon and grind the seeds in my grinder
This mix will be "chunky" and not as fine as tea you get that is leaves only.
Below is what your Ceylon Cinnamon looks like after grinding.
