I made this with fresh orange juice, orange pekoe tea, and Splenda. While I enjoyed it, I think I would like to try it with a different kind of tea (like Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice). I think I would like more of a contrast in flavours (just a personal choice). Next time, I will use a cinammon stick instead of ground cinammon (because I felt the ground cinammon didn't blend as well as it should & left a residue). Made for Top Favorites of 2009 Tag-Feb'10.

Outstanding burst of fruit,made with freshly squeezed satsumas. The tea is hardly noticeable, but I suspect it adds a subtle depth of flavor. It is wonderful. The spices are complementary and do not dominate the taste at all. I probably was gilding the lily by using Constant Comment tea, but I didn't have any regular black tea. I recommend this highly!

I was searching for a recipe to use up three honey tangerines I had on the counter and this was perfect! I have to admit, I did change it a little bit! I used a broken up cinnamon stick, a star anise, fresh grated nutmeg, some of the tangerine zest, plus a handful of chai spice mix from World Spice in Seattle. It was absolutely divine! Thank you so much for this great idea.
