Spiced Apple Tea
Ingredients
  • 1  lemon
  • 4  cups  apple juice
  • 2  cups  water
  • 4  inches  stick cinnamon
  • 1  tablespoon  whole cardamom pods, crushed
  • 1  teaspoon  whole cloves
  • 6  black tea bags (decaffeinated, if desired)
  • 1/4  cup  maple syrup
  •  Thin apple slices (optional)
Directions

1. Use a vegetable peeler to remove strips of peel from half of the lemon; set peel aside. Squeeze juice from lemon.

2. Combine apple juice, water, and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice in a large saucepan. (Save remaining juice for another use.) For the spice bag, place cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and the lemon peel strips in the center of a 6-inch square of double-thick 100-percent cotton cheesecloth. Bring corners together and tie with a clean string. Add bag to apple juice mixture.

3. Bring mixture to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Add tea bags; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and spice bag and discard them. Stir in maple syrup. Serve in mugs. If desired, float apple slices on top of each serving. Makes 8 servings.
