More of a punch or a wassal then a tea. I threw this in the crockpot before we left for our annual tree decorating trip up a snow covered mountain. Wonderful to come home to after freezing our butts off lol The house smelled so wonderful! The spiciness armed us up right quick :) And full of VC! Next time I'll cut the sugar down or add more water since I thought it was a little to sweet.
This strikes me more as a cider than a tea, but what the heck - it's a delicious beverage either way! We love it!
I tagged this warming & delicious hot drink due to my fondness for cranberries & cinnamon candies + the crockpot prep method. Then I made a half recipe tonite to kill the chill of the 1st cold (27F) Icelandic nite since we returned from the US - a clear error on my part since there is not enough of it to suit me! A full recipe will grace our annual *Thanksgiving Celebration* dinner w/friends on 11/30. This is a terrific low-cal, no-fat & family-friendly treat! Thx for sharing this keeper recipe w/us. Yum! :-)
This has been a tradition in my family for years! It has a wonderful holiday fragrance & flavor. If you haven't tried it do, you will be asked to bring it every year! Great for Thanksgiving and Christmas! Great for kids too, I loved helping my mom & sisters make this.
This is very good -- especially for sipping something good for you on a cold day--so full of Vitamin C -- it sure will help keep colds at baby--plus being so good too! You do need to watch it a bit more than most crockpot recipes, but for a hot drink on a cold day this is great! Thanks for sharing!
