FLAVOR GALORE in this cup of Hot Tea!! The blending flavors of orange and cinnamon stand out in this tea. Great to have when relaxing or as an aid in doctoring a bad cold. Quick and easy to prepare
- 10 ounces hot brewed tea (use 2 packets)
- 1 teaspoon sugar or 1 teaspoon Splenda sugar substitute
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 orange
- In a large mug or coffee cup prepare hot tea. (I microwave 10 ounces of water for 1 minute and steep 2 tea packets.)
- Stir in sugar and cinnamon.
- Cut 2 slices from orange and cut slices in half. Squeeze juice from remaining orange into cup.
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.
