Hot Spiced Tea

Fall makes me crave Pumpkin Muffins, Hot tea, and all the delicious cold weather comfort foods. One thing that I love is my Mother-in-law's Hot Wassail. I think that I've only personally made it one time...mainly because it uses ingredients that I typically don't have....and I just simply don't have the patience to prepare it.
This week I stumbled up on a blog called The Outdoor Wife. She had a recipe posted for 
"The Best Tea EVER ." With a name like that...how could I not try it. I already had most of
The ingredients in my cupboard already. I purchased the remaining ingredients and gave it a whirl.

It's tastes and smells DELICIOUS.
I also love that it's in powdered form..so I can make one cup at a time.

Directions:
Mix all of this together thoroughly in a large bowl, then spoon into your storage container. Once you’ve got it properly stored, go ahead and heat up some hot water in your tea kettle. When the kettle starts howling, take two heaping spoonfuls of the Orange Spiced Tea mix and put it into your favorite mug (or add as much as you’d like to your taste). Add the hot water, give it a good stir, and take a drink.
