Homemade Apple Spice Tea Mix

I'm on a Tea kick........ off of coffee for awhile so I'm in pursuit of great tea recipes. I posted a recipe for homemade Chai Tea Mix and here's the next recipe that I'm passionate about.
The Tea Mix makes a great Holiday Gift with the instructions for making a cup of tea, attached to a Christmas Mug, or place the mix in a decorative Christmas Tin with a label.

Apple Spice Tea Mix:

Here's what you'll need:
Individual Tea Filters

2 TBS Loose Green Tea
2 TBS chopped Crystallized Ginger
1 tsp Whole Allspice
1 tsp Whole Cloves
6 -  Dried  Crispy Apple Slices, just make sure they're not the soft ones.
6 -  3" Cinnamon Sticks

In a mixing bowl:
Green Tea
Mix well.

Divide the tea mixture among 6 tea bags and add 1 slice of Dries Apple.
Tie 1 piece of Cinnamon stick onto the bag as you secure the top with string.

Prepare the tea in individual mugs of hot water:
1 bag for 6 - 8 oz. of hot water.
Steep for 4 minutes.
Remove the bag and enjoy!

Peace in the Kitchen!
