Hot apple cider is a classic fall drink the children love, adding a bit of Vanilla Tea to the mix makes this cider smooth, sweet and is spiced enough that you can serve it all winter long.
5 cups cold water
4 bags Vanilla Red Bush Tea
3 cups apple cider
8 red apples
10 whole cinnamon sticks
In a large saucepan, boil 5 cups of cold water and 4 tea bags for 2 minutes to brew the tea.
While boiling, slice the apples thinly and set aside.
Once brewed, reduce the heat to a simmer, remove the tea bags, add the sliced apples, cinnamon sticks and add the apple cider.
Simmer on low heat for 15-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Before serving, ensure that each cup has a few slices of apple and a cinnamon stick for garnish.
