Apple Spiced Tea

This is a hot spiced tea that's perfect for a cool fall day, or you can chill it and serve it as refreshing iced tea to cool off when you're parched on a hot summer day.

The rich autumn colors of this tea make it a great choice for your fall party table. The fruit juices add a natural sweetness that gives it a smooth, balanced taste.

I prefer to strain it for a smooth tea, but you might prefer unstrained if you like bits of spice in your tea.
