A lovely, warming blend, perfect for fall and winter. Though I actually like it year-round.
Also, I typically do not like rooibos, but I like it in this blend. Somehow, it's just the perfect base for these spices.
Note:  even if you don't like powdered or liquid stevia, you might like the dried *leaf* of stevia in this.

1 cup rooibos
1 cup cinnamon stick pieces (crush or break up cinnamon sticks)
1 tsp ground cloves
3 T. orange peel
1/2 cup stevia leaves

Optional
If adding both lemon flavored items, maybe use the lesser quantity of each.
I forgot to write down my quantities on these, so add to your taste or liking.
2 T. to 1/4 cup lemon grass, optional
2 T. to 1/4 cup lemon balm, optional
1/4 cup nettle, optional


I was out of rooibos, but wanted this tea, so I used rose hips, and added a touch of cardamom.

I liked it!

My favorite blend is turmeric and ginger. Love it so much, this kind of green tea is good for inflammation too! So win win
