This amazingly delicious tea comes from my Great Grandmother's kitchen! (my Mother's Grandma)
I always remember this tea at Christmas time.
****This Recipe makes about a 32 servings *********

Hope you give this a try this Christmas Season, (much better than hot apple cider)
Merry Christmas and Enjoy!!!!
