A cup of tea, Autumn blend

About a year ago, I started experimenting with making my own tea blends (link), since then I've made a lot of different blends, going with the seasons and my taste. With Autumn now surely here (4 degrees tonight!!!), I made a blend to fit this season with warming spices.
I blend my teas as I cook, throw in whatever finds my fancy. When I dug up some ginger in the garden I also uprooted some turmeric, although it hardly has any flavour, threw that one in too for a funky colour.
In case it was a hit I took a picture before throwing the lot in the kitchen blender. The ingredients as you see them on the picture:
Ginger, cinnamon, peel of a scrubbed orange, cloves, coriander seeds, turmeric and white peppercorns.
I love this tea! With a divine scent and a nice little bite from the ginger and peppercorns.
Cuppa anyone?

Note: if you use fresh ingredients, make sure that your blend can breath, it will go mouldy otherwise. I tend to make up a batch that will last a week or two.
