Gluehwein (Non-Alcoholic) - German Apple & Tea Punch

"Posted for ZWT6 German Region. I found this on a German Food & Recipe site that explained traditions of Germany. This drink is normally made with wine for adults but when I saw this post for a non-alcoholic drink for kids or adults who do not want alcohol I just had to post it."

    This is a great punch! I made it for our family trip to the lake for Memorial Day. I doubled the recipe, and after the tea cooled I stored in a jug that we put in a cooler and took out on to the lake! Everyone in the family really enjoyed this! The only change I made was to use de-caffienated tea since I can't have caffiene! Thanks for posting! Made for The Queens of Quisine ZWT6!

    Yum!! I so enjoy the spices in this. But then you really can't go wrong with cinnamon and cloves. Perfect for a hot day. Made for ZWT6 for a Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens.

    Nice tasting punch, especially with this great combo of apple, citrus & tea (well, the cinnamon, too, but that's a given for me)! Very satisfying, & a beverage I'll be happy to make again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed while on tour in Germany with the ZWT6]
