Cinnamon Anise Tea

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Annacia

Tea is very popular in the Middle East. This is one that I've been making for a long time and not only does it taste great it has a mild soothing quality. It's certainly nothing medicinal but a few peaceful mins is a day can't be a bad thing. The cooking time is for steeping.

Love it! Great if you're sick...honey, lemon, cinnamon...what more could you want? I used loose leaf darjeeling. I added some vanilla sugar instead of plain & that was extra tasty! Made for NA/ME Tag 6/13, :)
