The title is a little misleading because there are no tea bags involved. However, this is a deliciously, hot, tangy brew that's full of fruit flavor. This is great for a party or feel free to scale down the recipe for just a few guests.

A delicious 'tea' that is very warming on a cold winter's night. I love the flavour combinations, but will cut back on the sugar in future. Yummo!

I made up 1 quart of this deliciously, refreshing drink, put it in the fridge to cool, and served it, iced, with dinner. Loved everything about it - especially the rich, spicy undercurrent.

This is real good. Great for warming you up on a chilly night. I love cranberry and orange juice anyway, heated with cinnamon and lemon juice is even better. Congratulations on your Football Pool win.
