Warming Clove Tea With Hints
of Cinnamon & Nutmeg

Wherever there is a spice you'll find a drink or infusion, and cloves and clove tea are no different! Whilst researching the various herbs and spices for this website, one thing they all seemed to have in common, you can make a tea with them.

This tea is very warming, and you can really taste this spice, and the subtle hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. The lemon juice gives it a nice slight tang.
