I have made this and given as gifts. It is so good on a cold morning or evening. I will have to try it with the added ingredients to make the hot spiced punch.

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!
