Reviews for Autumn Tea
"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."
"I served this with my Thanksgiving dinner and it was a hit!"
"This drink is excellent and we will be making it many more times. We are also keeping this recipe."
"Very yummy, will make again."
"Delicious!Guests loved it. I will serveagain at Thanksgiving. Kid friendly too."
