I've been serving beverages made with various flavors of tea at gatherings, and people are always surprised by the results. This blend features flavors we associate with fall - apple, cranberry and pumpkin pie spice. Serve it either warm or cold. -Sandra McKenzie, Braham, Minnesota

"This is a great fall drink. I substitute the no sugar apple juice with regular apple juice and omit adding sugar in the recipe. It's perfect."

"This has a refreshing harvest flavor. If you want more of a cider, prepare as directed. If you want more of a tea, double tea, water, sugar, and spice. I made pumpkin pie spice using a recipe I found on the internet and spices already on the shelf. Mary"

"Pretty but too sweet for me. BEWARE there is a whopping 32 g sugar per serving, 33 g carbs, and 130 calories. The nutritional analysis is not for the recipe as prepared. The analysis should reflect the recipe and should be rewritten. Some diabetics rely on its accuracy, and this is misleading at a glance."
