For this recipe, we chose Steamy Cinnamon Rose for its notes of citrus, clove and vanilla. The end result is a modern twist on the traditional mulled cider. Here’s what you’ll need:
4 cups (32 ounces) apple cider (use a high quality cider!)
3 tablespoons Talbott’s Steamy Cinnamon Rose tea
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 cup Apple Brandy (we used Laird’s Applejack)
Cinnamon stick for stirring
Bring apple cider to a boil, reduce to a simmer and add Talbott’s Steamy Cinnamon Rose tea. Allow the tea to steep for 3 minutes, stir the cider and then take a taste test to ensure the tea has infused completely and permeated the cider. The quality of the cider will determine how long you need to steep the tea. If you like stronger notes of citrus and clove in your spiced cider, allow the tea to steep another minute more. Strain the tea leaves. Stir in the light brown sugar and Apple Brandy. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring often. Pour into your favorite mug and garnish with a Cinnamon stick for stirring.
Autumn never tasted so good!
