For most of us that like and enjoy a hot cup of spiced tea, then making one from the scratch is a plus. I saw this in a book at the Scarborough Library, Tobago, some time ago, when I looking for tea recipes, smoothies and teas to create.
I can not recollect the name of the book, but I had written the recipe down to make and it was a hit, with many of my tea friends, that I wanted to share with you.

Mix all the ingreadients and place in a covered container.
