Fruity Spiced Tea

spiced tea

Spiced tea is made with orange, cranberry, and apple juice and flavored with cinnamon candies, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and sugar. It is not actually made with tea at all, but it is a delicious warm drink that will warm up a cold winter day.

Serve this hot drink as an alternative to coffee in the cold winter months. You can also serve this tea as a good warm up after a skating party or skiing. There are just some times when you want a warm beverage to serve and not everyone likes coffee. This is also a drink that all ages can enjoy.

This spice tea recipe is for a large party sized perkolater coffee pot or coffee urn that holds at least 24 cups. Not everyone has one of these, but chances are your neighbor does. Perhaps they will let you borrow it for a day or take a look below at some that you can buy.
