Tea of the morning here. It has been a rare Sunday of domesticity since I got up and made breakfast for the BF and I and then decided I wanted to make some banana bread, yum yum!

So this tea came in my last S&V order but I haven’t tried it until today. I was so sure I would like it that I bought 4 oz. of it.

I accidentally steeped it for 6 minutes because I forgot what I was doing, but it still seems really good to me. The spices are pretty strong here, I am getting a LOT if clove and ginger and cinnamon a bit lesser so. It might be different when I steep it for the recommended time. The tin contains pieces of broken up spice so this is not a "flavored’ Tea only, it’s a bit more like a chai. With all the health benefits of cinnamon, clove and ginger this will be a great one to sip on all winter long. Also smells really good. Maybe I’ll bake some gingerbread soon. ;)
