This is for those of you who enjoy hot apple cider, but don't want to make a large batch of it!

This was tasty. I didn't have whole ingredients so I put 1/4 tsp cloves, 1/4 tsp allspice, 1/8 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tsp brown sugar in a tea bag. I put the tea bag in the apple juice, microwaved for 2 min, then let it steep for 3 additional minutes. Perfect when you want something hot but different than tea or coffee. Thanks for the idea!
