Holiday Spiced Tea Originated from Alice Pouncey of Decatur, MS

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brew the tea in 1/2 gallon of the water, and set aside.
  2. Brew the cloves separately in 2 cups of the water until the water is amber-colored and has a strong clove scent. This brewing process will take longer than the tea. Strain the clove water.
  3. Stir the sugar into the tea until it dissolves. Add the orange juice, lemon juice, and clove water.
  4. Pour all into a gallon jug. Add enough additional water to fill the jug.

I brewed this with some Yorkshire Tea that I have, & it made for a very nice tasting spiced tea! It was made for some expected company, but with our day-long snow yesterday, most people stayed home! Still, we thoroughly enjoyed it's initial warmth & aroma! We had a small amount left over in the frig this morning, & I enjoyed it cold (almost made a smoothie out of it)! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
