As the cool weather moves in, we turn to warm, even hot, drinks. One of my personal favorites is my own homemade Spice Tea recipe. The recipe is easy to mix together and a hot cup of spice tea is extremely easy to make once the recipe is ready.
My sister originally gave me a jar of this tea and I immediately requested the recipe. I have now been making it for over 30 years. It has become a staple in our winter pantry. When my sister comes to visit, we still enjoy a cup of hot spice tea together while we visit.

An Easy Gift to Make and Share
Fill a glass canning jar, an empty jelly jar or any small container with the Spice Tea mix. If you use a canning jar or an old jelly jar with an ugly lid, you can decorate the gift by cutting a square of material with pinking shears. Then cover the lid of the jar!
