Brimming with Hospitality

I hope you have a day that is brimming with hospitality! Since autumn is in the air, it's time to bring on the pumpkin spice, apples, and cranberries. Here's a recipe for an autumn tea that I think you'll enjoy:

Spicy Apple Cranberry Tea

3 tea bags
3 cups boiling water
3 cups unsweetened apple juice
1 1/3 cups cranberry juice
3 Tbsp. sugar
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/8 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Place tea bags in a teapot, add boiling water, cover, and steep for 4 minutes. Remove tea bags and discard. Pour tea into large pitcher. Add remaining ingredients. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Pour a serving portion into a saucepan and heat to a simmer. Serve hot. Or may be served chilled over ice if desired.



  1. This tea sounds delicious and would be a nice compliment to an upcoming luncheon.

  2. Such a cute little figurine!!

  3. Sounds good! Cute little nun there.

  4. Sounds delicious. I love the recipes for beverages that you share.

  5. I love the little figurine - she is adorable!
