This is a wonderful smooth and relaxing tea! I doubled the amount of tea but kept the rest of the ingredients the same and yes, I drank it all myself! Delicious, mild little kick - just terrific. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Made for the Comfort Cafe event, January 2009.

This was a terrific tea Annacia. I enjoyed it very much. I used a dark tea with black currant, added a beautiful gold rum and a little almond extract, ( don't enjoy Amaretto) and some sugar. It was delicious, soft and subtle, very comforting and soothing. Thanks so much for sharing my friend. Made for Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - India
