2 (4-inch) cinnamon sticks
1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
2 to 3 whole cloves
3 to 5 whole cardamom pods
5 coin-size pieces fresh ginger

5 cups cold water
4 bags orange-pekoe tea

1 orange, juiced


1Lightly crush the cinnamon, peppercorns, cloves, and cardamom pods in a mortar and pestle or on a cutting board with the bottom of a saucepan
2Put the crushed spices, ginger & citrus peels in a medium saucepan and add the water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, partially covered, until aromatic, and the cinnamon stick opens a bit, about 10 minutes.
3Add the tea bags, immediately remove from the heat, and steep for 3 to 4 minutes.
