Christmas teaReviewed by our expert panel
(at time of publication)
- 1 stick cinnamon
- 100g loose-leaf green tea
- 5 cloves
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 vanilla pod
- 1 tablespoon dried cranberries (optional)
1 Prepare a clean and dry, see-through jar.
2 Break cinnamon stick in small pieces then place in jar with the rest of the ingredients. Close the lid tightly and shake until mixed well.
3 Wait at least 24 hours for tea to absorb the aroma of the spices.
- If the jar you use has been cleaned but still smells strongly of what was in it before (eg. pickles), to get rid of the smell, pour in 1/2 cup baking soda and close the lid. Wait 24 hours then throw away baking soda, rewash the jar and dry it well before using.
- This tea will keep well for up to 6 months.
