The rich and spicy smell of this potpourri reminds us of a hot cup of our Yummy Chai tea! For all you craf-TEA folks, this DIY project is fun for a rainy day.

You will need:

  • Dried rose petals
  • 1⁄4 cup whole cloves
  • 1 cup whole allspice
  • 10 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks, broken into pieces
  • 8 small bay leaves
  • 4 whole nutmeg
  • 3 tbsp anise
  • 2 tbsp whole cardamom pods

Mix ingredients in a large bowl, stirring well. Store the extra potpourri in a zippered bag to preserve freshness. You can even house the finished product in a vintage teacup and saucer for a dainty display.
