Reviews forSpiced Apricot Tea
"Many years ago I received a special TOH magazine insert full of recipes for the holidays; I think it was in the early 80's. I've moved a few times and last I saw it, it was tattered from use.My mother and I would make Spiced Apricot Tea and it was a wonderful warm treat in the afternoon around Dec. or Jan. So glad the recipe is still available.This warms me up and brings back sweet memories all at the same time. Now...if I could only find the booklet for all the other delicious warm beverages and snack."
"Omitted spices. The tea had a rich apricot flavor. I also tried sour cherry juice and it was just as good as with the apricot nectar. However, it could use a little less lemon juice."
