This is a recipe for tea to be made in a 3 quart Mr Coffee Iced Tea Pot. You could probably make it in a saucepan on top of the stove. You can make it as sweet and cinnamonny as you want to. It is very refreshing.

Beautiful color! We did not add any sugar as the red hots made it sweet enough. I also made it in a coffee pot instead of a tea maker but it worked out fine.

WOW!! This made an awesome brew of tea. I filled up the water well, because I don't put ice in the pitcher while the tea is brewing. I did have to help the cinnamon candies along but they melted and the flavor was incredible. Didn't add extra sugar--all my taste testers thought it was fine without. I made 6 quarts and we took it to a UA tailgate. I poured into gallon jugs and packed it up in an icechest. Very refreshing and everyone loved it. Thanks AWW.

I'm sorry, but I didn't care for the iced tea. The cinnamon taste in the red hots candies seemed to over power the taste of this beverage. I did however, added 2 more tea bags, which gave the tea a nice tea taste to it, but other than that, I didn't care for the end results. I ended up throwing out the tea.
