1. In a whistling kettle put in 8 oz (or how many you are serving for) in with the cloves and the cinnamon.

2. Once this water has boiled, pour into a teapot with black tea leaves.

3. Brew for 3 to 4 mins and enjoy!

My mom serves with milk but you can have this without too.

Ingredients: White tea, marigold blossoms, artificial flavoring

Temperature: 180°F/82°C

Brew time: 3-4 min

This tea is delicate white tea with a hint of floral and a sweet pineapple aftertaste. I love these blooming teas as it gives you a spectacle to watch as your tea is brewing in the pot. Make sure you brew in a glass teapot or you won’t get to appreciate it! It has a light refreshing taste and I love the smell of pineapple. As always the price of these Teavana teas are very high. You can use the same tea ball a couple of times to get the most out of your money. I would definitely buy this again!
