What’s more cozy than a hot cup of spiced tea on a cold winter day? 😀 If you’d like to make your own holiday tea blend, here’s a basic recipe for tea spiced with orange, cinnamon and cloves. You can easily adjust the recipe: and add other spices or teas, such as cardamom, allspice, nutmeg, ginger, lemon peel, or rosehip tea. Homemade spiced tea mix makes a perfect Christmas gift for friends and family!
- 4 tbsp black tea
- orange peel stars (from one orange)
- 1/2 tsp Ceylon cinnamon powder
- 4 cloves, ground in a mortar
Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight glass jar.
The flavor will improve with time: Infuse the DIY tea blend for about 5 days or a week.
Meanwhile bake some gingerbread lattice cookies to enjoy with your tea. 😉
Brew like black tea, to the strength you like. Steep for 5 minutes.
Add lemon juice and honey to taste.
