This was such a wonderful tea recipe that I'll definitely make again. and I wouldn't change a single thing. I used an Earl Grey tea, and I think that was a good choice. This tea recipe has a great combination of flavors that meld together nicely. It's a nice tea drink to consider for the holidays! Thank you for sharing your recipe, MarylandMomof3. Made for New Kids On The Block tag game.

Great "warmer-upper" for fall and winter. I cut the amount of sugar in half and it was just sweet enough for us. I used an English Breakfast tea. Didn't have any candy canes this time of year, but will try that garnish at Christmas time. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.
