Wow, wow, wow. I absoultely loved this tea. It had most of my favorite spices in it. I used my motar and pestle to freshly ground the spices, I adore the subtle flavors this brings out. Made exactly as written, but without fresh mint...mine is covered by snow, so I used a mint syrup instead, which worked well in this recipe. I left it to brew for 20 minutes, it was perfection, lovely and bold. Thanks for sharing a new favorite. I have added this to my favorites cookbook for 2013 Kudos to you.
