For mulling wine or cider this is as good as it gets. With Cassia-Cinnamon, Cardamom, Star Anise, Allspice, Ginger, Cloves, and Orange, your guests will smell the spice in the air before settling into a cup of this holiday favorite. Dose to personal preference but we start with 2 tablespoons of crushed Mulling Spice per quart of cider or wine, warmed GENTLY for up to twenty minutes and then strained. The longer you steep, the stronger the flavors. Now go sing some holiday songs already! This blend is salt free.
