This is a light flavoured lovely tea. I liked the accent of vanilla for which I used halal vanilla paste, with flecks of vanilla bean. Following Annacia's lead I made ours with rooibus & honey bush tea bags from Traditional Medicinals and followed the rest.
What a delicious delight this tea is. I'm a strong fan of anise and doubled that. My tea of choice was Rooibos with the vanilla extract. Following the timing directions given yielded a mellow spice and mild tea flavor. I had one cup and follower it with another right away. Sharon, thanks so much for another lovely keeper :D
I love this tea. I did decrease the cloves to 3 just for personal preference. It is a very soothing drink. Thanks for sharing!
This is REALLY AN OUTSTANDING TEA, & one I'll be happy to make again & again! Although my other half didn't care for the cloves, I did, & in this case, I'm the one who counts! Another great beverage, Sharon ~ Many thanks! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
I am an avid tea drinker - this was delightful. I used decaf green tea and followed the directions exactly. The clove, anise, cinnamon and vanilla (I used a dash of vanilla extract as I didn't have a vanilla pod) made the tea taste Chai-like. It was very, very good and I will make this tea again.
