It has suddenly started to feel like winter here in Ohio. We’ve had days of rain and even a few snowflakes. This is time of year when I start digging in the freezer for last year’s cranberries so we can cuddle up on the couch with cups of Cranberry Spice Tea! I saw a recipe similar to this one in a tiny holiday flip book on the counter of a local bulk food store years ago. It sounded delicious and I wanted to make it, but I could never find that little book or recipe again. The store is closed now but I’ve been making my Cranberry Spice Tea for several years now.

Contrary to it’s name there’s no actual tea in this recipe. I have seen some recipes like this with black tea or apples but I’ve never tried it. This tea is so fresh and bright with its tart cranberry base mellowed with orange juice and spiced with cinnamon and cloves. To me this is the taste of the Holiday and winter seasons rolled up in a drink.
