A simple tea.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour water, cinnamon, and cloves into a pan.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Add a tea bag and let steep at a lower heat until desired strength is reached. I usually wait 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in 1 teaspoons lemon juice and sugar. More or less lemon juice may be needed depending on the concentration. The kind I use is pretty strong, so I only use a teaspoons Use less sugar or substitute depending on your preference.
  5. Remove from pan and heat and pour into cups. Cool and serve with ice for an ice tea.

This is good. I used frfeshly squeezed lemon. I would suggest a coffee filter to strain. I imagine this might be better cold as an ice tea. Made for Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens Round 01/10.

This could very well become my favourite spiced tea! What a great way to warm up after being out in the chilly outdoors this morning. I made this exactly as written and I wouldn't change a thing. As I wrapped my cold hands around the steaming mug and inhaled the spicy scent I thought "oooh this is going to be good." And so it was! Thank you Missis Spock.

Very tasty cup of tea! I usually like plain tea with nothing in it, but this was a nice little treat today. I made exactly as the recipe states and it came out perfect. The lemon gives it a nice zing, but the sugar balances the tartness of the lemon and spices. I think I'm going to make this again for my husband when he gets home. Wonderful drink thanks so much for posting! Made for Spring PAC 2009
