Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly crush the cinnamon, peppercorns, cloves, and cardamom pods in a mortar and pestle or on a cutting board with the bottom of a saucepan.
  2. Transfer the spices to a medium saucepan, add the ginger, star anise and citrus peels. Add the water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, partially covered, until aromatic, and the cinnamon stick opens a little, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the tea bags to the pan and immediately remove from the heat. Set aside to steep for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the tea bags, and add the apple juice and orange juice. Return the pan to a medium heat and warm, taking care not to let the tea boil.
  4. Strain and serve hot.
