4 1/2 stars. This was good but I suggest using a cinnamon stick steeped in the water rather than ground as it leaves a lot of residue. Made for Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens, Round 01/10.

Hey Seasoned Cook, I am drinking my 2nd cup of this delicious hot tea, as I write my review here. Mmm, boy is this good! I did however, prepare mine using 12 ounces of water, which I cooked in a small saucepan ontop the stove, and bringing it just to a boil. After pouring the water into a very tall coffee mug, along with the tea bags, I also added one cinnamon stick, so I didn't have to add any ground cinnamon. I then covered my coffee mug w/a small plate, and steeped the tea for 5 minutes. After I stirred in the sugar, I cut an orange into quarters, then cut each quarter into 4 more quarters, and used my citrus press to juice each quarter into my coffee mug. I decided against adding the 2 orange slices. Since adding all that juice to my tea, I found it cooled down the tea a bit, so I removed my cinnamon stick, and reheated the tea in the microwave. I then put the cinnamon stick back in my mug, while drinking the tea. One thing I did do while making another cup of this tea, I found I could reuse my cinnamon stick again, when making another cup of tea. But one thing I did do differently when making my 2nd cup, I did add tad bit more sugar, 1 and a 1/2 teaspoons to be exact (using a measuring spoon, not a regular teaspoon). Thank you Seasoned Cook, for sharing this recipe, and for posting a photo of it as well. I look forward to making this wonderful tasting tea again in the near future!

I really liked this. I don't like strong tea, so I used only one tea bag for a short time. This is healthy and very tasty.

Thank you for a delicious tea with just the right balance of flavors. The only variation I made was steeping the tea with a cinnamon stick instead of adding ground cinnamon as not to have the cinnamon settle on top. Thank you! (Made for Summer Comfort Cafe 2009)

This tea is wonderful...the flavors compliment each other very well giving it a bold yet not overpowering taste. It is a must try for any hot tea drinkers. And for those tea drinkers who have overlooked the recipe because of the sugar I can tell you it is great without the sugar. This tea is also very soothing on a soar throat. Made and reviewed for the 27th AUS/NZ Swap.

I don't normally drink hot beverages but I have a cold and wanted to try this tea. I used decafe tea and kept to the recipe. It had a really yummy taste. Thank you Seasoned Cook

I was having a pretty miserable day, feeling crummy and watching the fog and rain outside, so I whipped up this cup of tea. It was warm and soothing, but the orange gave it a little kick that helped liven my spirits on a grey, boring day. Definitely a keeper!
