Fuzzy Slippers Designs kindly gave me this elegant and petite TeaPosy Set (thanks Moriah!), which is perfect for stuffing with a variety of different spice blends and is small enough to keep the water hot in between refills. For this tea, I selected some star anise for its beautiful shape and pungent licorice notes, and a stick of cinnamon for its sweet and warm aura. I then added some bruised cardamom pods and finished it off with some whole cloves before steeping it in hot (not boiling) water. This spice blend immediately releases a beautiful aroma and each sip is laced with a subtly spicy flavor.

Beautiful photo! I used to have a very similar tea set. And then all but one cup remained, unbroken.
Oh this sounds perfect. I know what I'm doing at tea time today!
Thanks Lindsay — I hope you enjoy it!
