This is a wonderful healthy tea that is filled with antioxidants!
I make the whole recipe and heat it up as I want some, all week long.

Spiced Tea

6 individual tea bags (use decaf if you plan to drink this in the evening like I sometimes do when the kids are in bed).

2 tsp. whole cloves

2 sticks cinnamon

4 qt. boiling water

2 C. sugar (I used 1 C.)

2 C. pineapple juice

1 (6oz.) can frozen orange juice, undiluted

¾ C. lemon juice
Pour boiling water over tea bags, cloves and cinnamon; steep 10-15 minutes. Add remaining ingredients. Heat and serve.

This stores well in refrigerator or may be frozen.
I just boil the water in a large pot and add tea bags and then the rest. I added way less sugar, with all the rest it does not need it :)
Yields: 5 quartsTime to make: 20 min .

*Thanks Vicki for sharing this wonderful recipe! I LOVE it!
