Chai Spiced Honey Recipe


Honey Recipe | Chai Spiced Honey Black Tea

This Chai-Spiced Honey Recipe is perfect swirled into your favorite black tea during chilly weather at the peak of flu season.

I love pretty much all tea, but one of my very favorite teas is a rich and fragrant spiced chai. I have been on the hunt for a new favorite chai tea ever since Celestial Seasonings changed their Mountain Chai blend. After years of chai tastings falling flat, I decided to create my own with a spiced honey recipe + black tea + milk. Yes, chai spiced honey is not the traditional way to make chai tea, but when you aren’t getting the flavor you are looking for in a tea bag or your loose-leaf blend, this perfectly sweetened mix of cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and clove, is perfection.


And… my hubby says, and I quote, “the chai spiced honey milk is better than hot chocolate!” So, I will count that as a win and encourage you to try it for yourself. I don’t think you will regret it!

Print Recipe
Chai spiced honey is a deliciously sweetened mix of cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and clove perfect for adding to tea, milk, or any recipe that would benefit from a touch of sweet rich spices.
Prep Time 5 mins
Total Time 5 mins
Servings 24 teaspoons


  • 1/2 cup local honey (great for allergy season!)
  • 3/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1//8 teaspoon clove
  • Pinch of ginger (add more if you like it spicy!)


  • Mix all ingredients together until well combined.


Expert tip! Measure the volume of your storage container/jar with water to determine how much honey to pour so you do not need to transfer the spiced honey mixture OR use a heat resistant liquid measuring cup to mix all ingredients together- once you transfer the honey to the storage container, add hot milk to the measuring cup, stir, then pour into your mug and enjoy!
