Thank you! Thank you! I had lost my recipe for this tea and I love it so much. When we were first married I used to drink this every night during the winter as I read before bed. I can't wait to have a cup again. Yummy!

Have a wonderful birthday. So glad you get to spend it with your wonderful sister!

Thanks, the only spiced tea recipe I had was a hard one with cloves, allspice, cinnamon, and a few other things! This one is MUCH easier and probably tastier!

Hey Lana,

As I told Lisa on her comment section, I was thinking I was a little early. In fact, I am a whole bunch late, but still in time.

Have a fabulous birthday you two. Celebrate all week long. Enjoy your time together.

Blessings,
Cheryl
