Spiced Tea

A friend of mine invited Bryce and I over for dinner one night and after dinner, she made us spiced tea. I have never been a spiced tea kind of person. I always thought it tasted way too much like apple juice and I dont like apple juice. But this time, it was a totally different experience! It was heaven in my mouth!! for real!!! I cant express how much I LOVE this tea!! I have made it twice and saved the left overs and put it in the fridge for the next day. I have almost had this tea everyday since I went to her house last week. I MUST share the recipe with you! PLEASE try this at home! Its amazing!!!!

Spiced Tea
6 c water
2 cinnamon sticks
1 1/4 c sugar
1 tsp whole cloves
juice of 1 lemon (I just used about 1 Tbs of lemon juice)
1 c orange juice
1 c pineapple juice
6 tea bags (regular tea used for iced tea)

In large put, put spices, sugar, and water. Boil for 10 minutes
Take off burner
Add juices and heat again (careful not to let it come to a boil again- just let it get steaming hot)
Add tea bags
Let stand 15 minutes

It is pretty sweet so if you dont want it really sweet, add less sugar.


Btw: I'm enjoying a cup of it right now!!

Let me know what you think if you try it!! :)
