Reviews forSpiced Apple Tea
"As is, I give this recipe 3 stars. It was okay, but before I took that first sip I was expecting a tad more sweetness, which I thought would come from the apple juice. I loved the idea of not having to add sugar, but after tasting it I knew that was the only way I would be able to drink it. I ended up adding about 1/4 cup of sugar and it was perfect for my taste."
"This is a delicious tea and one my family loves hot. It's good for cold days and makes my family very happy. It's a keeper, for sure."
