This tea is a pleasant and wonderful hot drink and is most welcoming on a cool fall day. It is not syrupy sweet like most drinks but is tangy and spicy with a hint of almond. Serve this at your next get together instead of punch and watch the compliments fly ! Recipe courtesy of food.com and Leta.
Heat sugar and 2 cups water in a pan large enough to hold 3 quarts, until sugar is dissolved.
Add remaining ingredients and heat till hot.
Do not boil.
Left over beverage can be cooled and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
