Float an orange slice in each cup of this spicy orange tea for extra fanciness. Lovely.


  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken up

  • 6 whole cloves

  • 2 tea bags

  • 1 cup orange juice, (preferably pulp free)

  • 1 tbsp brown sugar, (or more, to taste)


  • In a saucepan, combine the water, cinnamon stick and cloves. Bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat and plunk in the tea bags. Let steep, covered, for 5 minutes.

  • Fish out the tea bags, stir in the orange juice and the brown sugar, and strain into mugs (or a teapot) to serve.
