Ione Banks of Jefferson, Oregon sent in this delightful recipe that's sure to make teatime special. She easily dresses up homemade fresh mint tea with spices and a bit of honey.

- Honey, optional
- Place the water, cinnamon, cloves and allspice in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Stir in mint leaves. Remove from the heat; cover and steep for 5 minutes. Strain tea. Serve with honey if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
