This orange spiced tea is steeped with orange peel, cinnamon, and ginger. It’s the perfect tea to cozy up with this autumn season! I’m still running off of last weekend’s high. I had quite the three day adventure in San Diego with some of my best friends celebrating my bachelorette weekend. It wasn’t your typical wild, crazy, boozy bachelorette party. It was quite the opposite. While it was calm and tame, I had so much fun! (Even if we did make it back to the Airbnb every night before midnight.) My MOH planned THE perfect weekend. Tiki bars, all day spa day!, lots of food, and catching up with loved ones. That’s exactly what makes me happy. Orange Spiced Tea The weekend’s nonstop chatter did a number on my throat. This orange spiced tea is just what I need to soothe Monday blues and mini vacation withdrawals. Ingredients Needed: Black Tea of choice (loose or bags) Fresh Orange Peel Cinnamon Sticks Fresh Ginger Simple Syrup This tea is super simple to make. It tastes great warm and even better chilled. I took standard black tea bags and steeped them with orange peel, cinnamon sticks, and sliced ginger. It’s a little sweet, a little spicy, and very flavorful. I intensified the flavor with a delicious spiced simple syrup. Asides from sweetening this tea, use the simply syrup in coffee, oatmeal, and smoothies. Like your tea with booze? Use this tea to make spiced hot toddy! Orange Spiced Tea This orange spiced tea is steeped with orange peel, cinnamon, and ginger.
