READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Mandy

I'm not really a big tea drinker but saw this recipe & thought it sounded too good not to try. A lovely punch style drink perfect for a hot day! From Australian Good Taste.

When making this tea, I did opt out of the vodka & used the additional cider (freshly-made, not store-bought!) &, although I'm sure this would be a great cold beverage during warm weather, it's also wonderful as a hot drink during the colder months, & that's how I served it ~ HOT! I know I'll be making this often during the coming months, but I also look forward to having it year 'round! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
