This is good. I followed all the ingredients. It smelled a little strong when cooking but it tasted great when done. I only used 1/2 of sugar. More was not needed. Made for Holiday Tag 2007

Didn't have black tea, and couldn't find it here so used the green that I had on hand and have to say it was so good. Don't know what I liked the best, the wonderful aroma or the taste, both equally good. Such a wonderful blend of spices. I cut the recipe in half and also cut the sugar down as I'm not big on sweet tea, but do LOVE the spices. Used a dry white wine and this made for an excellant drink that I'm planning on serving the next time I have company over during this Holiday Season. Made for I Recommend - We give Thanks.

Well put me in the "love it" category - this is terrific! Loved the aroma too. I only used half the sugar called for and used a zinfandel wine. Great holiday drink - thanks for sharing the recipe!

Made this drink as much as a trial run (up to the end-of-year holidays) as for anything else & have it available for those who might like a warm drink at my 4th of July get together ~ Surprising how many will opt for this over an icy cold drink! I was with mikekey on this one & left out the wine ~ The apple cider & cranberry juice made a very nice flavor combo! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the current Comfort Cafe for my theme Tea Totin' Tipster, but without the tipiness!]

Yummy! I didn't have cranberry juice or burgundy wine, so substituted apple cider and pineapple juice. Yummy!

I made this without the wine. I added apple cider instead. This was VERY tasty, and warmed the cockles, as they say!

I definitely love this--who could hate it? It's great--smells great, tastes great, looks pretty, warms you up going down. A keeper!

I made this for Thanksgiving using Splenda. It was well like by my family who tried it (a couple wouldn't but that's okay) I've done mulled cider somewhat like this but this was the first time with the wine and tea. I will be making it again. Thanks!

Well, put us on the "love it" list! It's been cold and rainy all day today, and this was such a nice, warm, comforting drink. And you're right--it really does yell "Christmas." I'll be making this regularly throughout the winter. Thanks!
