    Great and simple recipe ! Easy to make. I personally would recommend you squeeze half an orange in when mixing the spiced apple juice and tea to add zest and that little more enchanted sweeteness otherwise you risk this being slightly blander than expected.My question is to anyone reading how long do you think this would keep afterward I’m assuming 24 hours but maybe more however unsure ?

    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.
