Nothing sets a better festive mood than ladling out warm mugs of merriment from a simmering pot on the stove as it fills the room with a bouquet of intoxicating, heady, exotic spices and aromatics. The history of mulled brews (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) is steeped in centuries of tradition, and the botanical boldness of our Temptress Forever Spiced mix can transform simple gatherings into multisensory experiences of ritual and reverence. Remember, that to ‘mull’, is to slowly attain wisdom. And let’s not forget the health benefits of these spices that have rocked apothecaries and herbalists across the ages — Hibiscus, Rosella and Shiraz are rich in flavonoids and polyphenols; ginger is a potent digestive aid; the eight-pronged star anise is both visually enthralling and adds a lively Liquorice aroma; Cloves radiate extraordinary anti-inflammatory benefits, Cinnamon is sensual and combined these spices make an inviting, deeply fragrant, heart-warming bouquet, that packs pizzazz in every mouthful, setting taste buds singing and invigorate the senses. Happy Mulling. Love Sarah x

Remove one of the spice bags from the pouch and add the mix to your choice of beverage – a litre or two of Apple or Pear Cider or a bottle or two of Wine – in a large saucepan. Bring to a slow simmer over a low heat for 20 minutes (or for hours), then turn off the heat, and strain out the spices. Your spiced brew It can be served immediately or chilled for later use. Ladle into mugs or heatproof glasses and savour.
A couple of notes of execution:
Temptress Forever Spiced spices are designed to add a warm, rich, and aromatic flavour to whichever beverages they are added to: Mulled Apple and Pear Cider/Mulled Wine/Sangria Spices/Boozy Mix.
We use whole spices in our blend which have a more intense flavour. The longer your brew simmers the more intense it will be, which really is a matter of personal taste.
If mulling wine, be mindful of not letting your brew boil. Alcohol evaporates so you could lose some of the boozy elements.
Mulled cider or wine is also delicious cold. Try it over ice with a jigger of bourbon or brandy, or use as a sangria. You can thank us later!
