More of a punch or a wassal then a tea. I threw this in the crockpot before we left for our annual tree decorating trip up a snow covered mountain. Wonderful to come home to after freezing our butts off lol The house smelled so wonderful! The spiciness armed us up right quick :) And full of VC! Next time I'll cut the sugar down or add more water since I thought it was a little to sweet.
