For years, our family has relied on this homespun mix to make hot spiced tea and a heartwarming punch. My parents always served steaming mugs of this punch at Thanksgiving. It was everyone's favorite. —Deb McKinney, Cedar Falls, Iowa

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 10, 2013

"I've been making this mix for years and I'm still not tired of it! Easy to make, stores well and makes such a nice, spicy warm cuppa'! I've made batches to use for holiday gifts in pretty jars or mugs as well and everyone seems to like this tea. Now that I have a Keurig, it's so easy to make a mug of it I drink it even more!"
