This is lovely Anna, I can't wait to make it again. I really enjoyed the wonderful spices in this hot treat. I used 1% milk and wildflower honey to round it off. Made exactly as written, wouldn't change a thing. Quick, easy and oh so tasty. Thank you for sharing another delightful beverage.

First, be sure to use fresh milk to make this. No amount of spice masking will
hide not-so-fresh milk! I used all the spices listed and subbed a small piece of cinnamon stick for ground. For the sugar-local wildflower honey. Next time I'll try coconut milk for fun. This was perfect on a cool, nippy early morning! Reviewed for NA*ME tag/September.
