Christmas Tea

Trying to get in the holiday spirit and TOTALLY not feeling it. Miss Hope had this Tea on her blog- and it just sounded so holidayish and wonderful- That I had to pass it on to you:

Christmas Tea

2 large tea bags
1 small can frozen orange juice
1 small can frozen lemonade
1 large can (46 ounce) Pineapple Juice
2 1/2 cups sugar
24 whole cloves
1/2 teaspoon powdered cinnamon

In a large pot add tea bags in about 1 quart of water. Bring to a boil, then let set for a few minutes. Remove tea bags. Add Pineapple, Lemon, and Orange Juices, sugar, cloves, and cinnamon, then add enough water to make 6 quarts. Let come to a boil then simmer. Serve hot. Flavor increases as tea ages. Store in refrigerator.

Note: this can be made in a Crock pot to.

5 things I am thankful for TODAY:

1. That my husband stacked all the wood before he left.
2. That you can watch TV on the net-since we don't have cable!
3. That people think our Turkey Day postcards are cute!
4. Over an hour conversation with Joe today.
5. "Nanna" bread that I made - all by myself - THAT CAME OUT GOOD!

I am a huge tea fan. Hot, cold, sweet, unsweet-I like it all! I'm definitely going to try out that recipe. It sounds really good!

This sounds great, I may have to make this. You know how I love me some tea!

Got your Turkey Day postcard last night - soooooo cute!

Mary said...

The tea sounds delicious-I need to try it!

I'm glad everyone liked the postcards too!

It's WONDERFUL!! You can make a pot of unsweetened tea to add to it (by the cup) if it's too sweet. We don't do that. We're Navy. HA HA HA HA

In fact, I'm making another batch of it tomorrow and can't wait!

Hope you all enjoy it!
