Apple Spiced Tea

Up until a year ago, I was a die-hard coffee drinker.  A change in my eating habits also led to one in my drinking habits as well, and I've actually found quite a few teas that I enjoy. One of them is an apple spiced version, but it's not always available at my grocery store.  I searched the Taste of Home site and found this version from Susan W.

I didn't make any changes to this recipe other than to use some dried sliced ginger root instead of the fresh.  I used NH made apple cider from a local orchard. I like this recipe because it's easy to scale up for multiple servings, and I suspect it will be just as delicious over ice when the warmer weather hits.

Looking for even more ways to warm up this winter? Check out what the other #FestiveFoodies are sharing today, and check back next Friday for even more ideas!  Thanks so much to Ellen from Family Around the Table for hosting.

Apple Spiced Tea
1/2 cup apple cider or juice
1/4 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
2 whole allspice
2 whole cloves
1 black tea bag
1/2 cup boiling water
1 tablespoon brown sugar

n a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add boiling water. Cover and steep for 5 minutes. Strain, discarding tea bag and spices. Stir in sugar. Serve immediately.


    1. Mmm...sounds so warm and comforting. It's chilly this morning I could definitely use a cup. I'm sure this is better than store-bought.

    2. Perfect drink year round. I would love a cup when sitting around a campfire in the fall.

    3. Sounds like the perfect way to end the day!
