I was happily surprised to love this hot tea as much as I do. Sipping it as I type this review!
I am not that crazy about fresh mint but when combined with all the tummy warming spices in the tea, I must admit, it is delightful! Thanks MizzNezz. Made for MizzNezz Cook-A-Thon. FIGHT LIKE A GIRL, GF! I have a feeling this tea will warm you inside and out while you are kicking BC to the curb!

MizzNezz This was wonderful. What a great fragrant treat. I really enjoyed this flavorful tea. It has the perfect ratio of spices to mint. I added orange blossom honey to the tea, it was sheer perfection. The honey brought out the flavor of all the beautiful spices and mint, allowing them all to shine. Thanks so much for sharing this treat, that I will make again. :)

This drink would be good during the wintertime. It's warming for your body and good for your digestion. I used organic peppermint tea bags (just peppermint, no tea leaves) and sweetened it with a bit of honey. I can imagine this would be thirst quenching cooled, though the warm spices make it more of a warm drink to me.
