Growing up my grandmother had a hot wine in the crock pot and I remember the smell of the spices, how rich and warm it made the house, how much she seemed to enjoy it and sharing it with others. I haven’t had that feeling in a long time but when I cooked up this mulled wine using our Cinnamon Hearts Pu’erh it took me back and I remembered why my gram loved that so much.

This mulled tea (skipping the wine) is now something that I make when I need that warm fuzzy feeling and if I want to be close to gram while she is far away. I make this when we have company for events at the house. I hope that you do too and that this can be a staple in your life as well.
