This Hot Tea taste so good, smells wonderful, and it's a great warmer upper. A friend makes this Hot Tea, she gave me the recipe. It's great to serve at special parties, hope you will enjoy it. When the temperatures drop it will warm you up. It is yummy to sip while you sit by the fire place and listen to soothing music, especially at Christmas and New years. The smell says "Come on in" to your guest. It's a good drink to serve at any occasion when there is a chill in the air. You can spike it up with a little Rum if you desire to do so.
Boil Spice Bag in 1 quart of water. Add 1 quart of heated sweet tea to spice water along with juices. Serve HOT. Makes about one gallon. May add 1/2 cup Red Hot Candies.
If you want stronger tea, add 2 tea bags to boiling water with spice bag. NOTE: You can purchase tea already prepared at the super market which is labeled sweetened or unsweetened. It is displayed in a cooler in gallon jugs. I purchase the sweetened tea, heat it and use it in this tea. You could also make your own with boiling water tea bags and sugar to taste. TIP: I KEEP MINE HOT IN A CROCK POT, I LOVE TO SMELL IT. You can make it ahead to transport, just put it in a sealed container, take your crock pot and heat it up when you reach your destination.
