Mary says, "This morning I came up with such a fine tea I just have to share it with you. After heating my water I poured it into my slow cooker and allowed a good black tea to strong steep. I added my own little bag of spices including cinnamon, orange and lemon peel, cloves and star anise with plenty of sugar. It tastes downright decadent and the kitchen smells wonderful. It will stay hot and ready to fill cups all day. It reminds me that "In cooking, as in all arts, simplicity is the sign of perfection- 'Curnonsky' - These scones are just spectacular... Try this with raspberries as well. "
