Orange Spiced Tea

Orange Spiced TeaDuring cold winter evenings, my granny would gather a knitted blanket onto to her lap and sip her favorite tea.

The odor of orange punctuated by the dark musk of cloves would fill our small living room as she sipped, slowly turning the pages of her latest travel book. My version of her favorite tea has cinnamon for added spice and flavor.
