In the afternoons I’m often looking for something other than my usually water to drink.
I’ve had enough coffee earlier in the day, and I want a little something with flavor to keep things chugging along. A pick-me-up, if you will, without loads of caffeine.
Sometimes it’s a mug of hot cocoa, other times it’s hot tea.
Thanks to Kauffman’s Fruit Farm & Market, I got my hands on a box of their Cider Spice Bags for Hot Mulled Cider. Unlike other loose mulled spices that’re meant to steep in a large pot, these are contained in little tea bags!
They’re perfect for a single serving of mulled cider, brewed just like you would a mug of tea, except you use apple juice, apple cider, or some other fun juice—like cranberry!—as your liquid.
Sure, you can make a larger pot of mulled cider or other juices using these bags (directions are on the box) if you have more than just yourself looking for a festive, hot beverage.
I, for one, love the ability to brew a single cupful whenever I want, without the hassle of pulling my own spices together and fussing with a tea strainer or cheesecloth.
What’s your favorite mulled juice combo?
