Need a last-minute gift idea? This black tea mix is fairly simple to put together, very cheap, and looks lovely. It is a deliciously fun homemade gift for the winter holidays and you can keep a few on hand for hostess gifts as well. With dried citrus and spices, the mix turns out wonderfully sweet and spicy and I bet you’ll find yourself enjoying more than one cup in the morning.
