This is THE tea to enjoy over the holidays!


Boil water, sugar, cloves and cinnamon drops for 10 minutes or until sugar and cinnamon drops are melted. Add cranberry juice and the remaing juices. Heat through and serve. Will keep in the fridge for a long time.

Just found about your recipe today. Sounds wonderful. I can't wait to try it. We always had special fruit puches and teas my mom made at the holifdays too. I won't wait until next Christmas to try it. One trip to the grocery store will do it!.
