I made this for DH because he has been drinking so much Lipton Citrus tea. We both thought this is great, either hot or cold. Loved the cinnamon flavor it imparts. Will have to stock up on lemon and pineapple juice.

UPDATE: I rated this as excellent in Nov'07 when we first made it ... lots of people have asked for the recipe & we've made quite a few jugs of it over the course of the winter. BUT! Today I completely forgot to add the sugar and you know what? It was still VERY delicious so I have decided to omit the sugar from now on, and let everyone in the family sweeten their own mug according to their preference when they are warming up their tea. Thanks again! This is now a regular item in our frig.

When you have a cold nothing is as comforting as a mug of spiced tea. I am used to making Russian Tea, but never before with pineapple juice (you can really taste it!). I used orange Tropicana (from the carton) and halved the recipe using 2 Lipton tea bags. Thanks Wenstar, for posting. I will be making this again! Roxygirl
