Nothing powdered or instant here. Just pure natural flavors to sip on a cold winter day. Smells great while it's brewing too. Vitamin C never tasted so good!

  • Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a separate pot. Add sugar; stir well until dissolved. Pour mixture into the stockpot with the tea. Add pineapple juice, orange juice concentrate, and lemon juice. Stir.

  • Put cloves in a tea ball and place into the stockpot with the tea-juice mixture. Cook for 10 minutes; do not boil. Turn heat down to very low; let simmer until flavors blend, 15 to 20 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

Feel free to adjust sweetness to your liking. I've not found a substitute like stevia, nectars, etc., that have not changed the overall flavor to where we still like it. This is how our family prefers it.

You can substitute 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon for the cinnamon sticks.
