I was looking on here for a chai type tea recipe b/c it's getting cold outside and I needed a hot drink! I found this & just now tried it. It is good! It tastes more like a mulled cider than tea to me, though. Also, I omitted the cloves since I didn't have any and it is just fine. I thought 1/2 tsp for 3/4 cup water was way too strong, though. I like the idea of trying other flavors, too.
