What a soothing cup of tea this was. And I have spices left over for more. Thanks for sharing this.

Wow - this tea packs a delicious punch! I love ginger, so after letting it steep as directed, I muddled the ginger before straining the tea. OM Gosh - so good! I did sweeten with a tad of honey. I bet this would be really good iced, too! Thanks for sharing this great tea!

What a lovely cup of tea. I love spices in my drinks and this excellent recipe does not disappoint. It was hot and spicy, so good. I did add some honey to help bring out all the beautiful spices. This was quick and easy to make. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for Seaside Brasserie.

What a lovely tea! It is a clear light mahogany colour and the spices are well balanced giving a delightful sip. I made two cups and happy I did. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tea Nat. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
