We are putting up a couple of hospital workers these next couple of days because the roads are icy and we live so close! This was our warming tea tonight before one of them went to work the night shift. I expect we will need more of its warmth tomorrow as well. The clove is the prominent note to me, but not overly spicy. The rum flavor is just right, and the cinnamon is a middle note and seems like a sweeter one. Lovely!
