Apple Cider Tea

Ok so in all the hoop la of the season, I have found my new favorite tea to drink!!!  It is a process to make it but oh My word so worth it!!!!  Apple Cider Tea, now I have had lots and lots of teas in my day but this is probably the best I have ever had!!! 

Like I said it is a long process that could probably be broken down by using store bought Apple cider but making it is so easy!!! 

Apple Cider

1 gallon Apple Juice, I used Martenellis because that is my favorite
4 Cinnamon sticks
2 Star Anise
2 Cardamon
6 whole cloves
peel of one orange(very little white part)

Put everything into a crockpot and let steep on low for 4 hours.  Strain and let cool then put back into juice bottle for storage.  Let sit in fridge overnight.  The next day add a simple syrup...

Simple Syrup

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup water

put sugar and water in sauce pan and simmer until sugar is dissolved.  Let cool completely then add to juice.  Mix well.

Apple Cider Tea

To make the tea mix half a cup of the Apple Cider with one Black pearl tea bag and fill your tea cup up with boiling water... the cold cider makes it the perfect temp for drinking right away!!!

By half a cup I mean half the size of your tea cup!!

Now the cider is awesome by itself, but you add that black pearl tea and it is awesome!!!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday and that you receive all of your wishes!  Thanks for looking

Blesses Be
