This tastes like Christmas Holidays. Really nice warm drink for a fall/winter day. I used Tropicana no pulp orange juice, white sugar, whole slightly crushed cloves and regular tea (Lipton Yellow Label). I simmered the water, spices and tea for a minute. Next time I will simmer for 1 1/2 minutes and then add the orange juice. I will probably make this again.
WOW! What a fantastic treat! DH and I enjoyed this Hot O.J. Sipper immensely with our breakfast this morning. Reminds me of our first restaurant date at The Gatekeeper Restaurant in La Jolla CA, many moons ago where they served a similar beverage, and I've been trying for years to replicate it. This is it, and I will treasure the recipe for years to come. Thanks blancpage! Made for the Comfort Cafe event.
With all ingredients at hand, this was a great treat for the guys who were outside raking leaves all day. I also used tea bags (Lipton), whole cloves and a cinnamon stick. I strained the mix through a coffee filter before serving. This is a delicious pitcher of 'sipper' that was enjoyed by us all. A great wintertime treat. Thanks for sharing. :)
This was a great warm me up recipe, especially now that the weather is getting into the minuses. I used a lemon teabag for this as I couldn't find any instant tea. it did turn out good and the lemon fit in very well with the other ingredients.
Yum!! Great fall time beverage to serve! It was a little rainy yesterday and this perked my afternoon right up! I didn't have ground cloves so used 3 whole cloves and simmered a little longer. Loved the spiced flavor of the OJ. This would be perfect on cold winter nights, maybe with a dash of whiskey, lol! Thanks!!
This 'sipper' is great whether hot or cold! Very nice! I did brew up 3 cups of green tea instead of using instant tea, but I think the only difference there would have been the few minutes off prep time! Just one more nice way to drink my tea! Will be making this one again! Thanks much! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my teammates in AUS/NZ Recipe Swap, Mar 08]
