Christmas Tea Punch (Adults only please)

Christmas Tea Punch

4TBSP Loose leaf black tea
(we recommend Java Kertasarie)
2 cups white rock sugar

3 cups of water, just below a boil
the juice of three lemons
3 sticks of Cinnamon

9 cloves

9 1/2 cups of dry red wine (we recommend a good Shiraz/Syrah)

Steep the black tea and cloves in the 3 cups of water for 3 1/2 minutes. Strain and discard tea leaves and cloves.
Mix with rock sugar, cloves, cinnamon and lemon juice and bring to the boil.

Add wine and reheat but do not boil. Perfect in a crockpot set on low.

Serve hot in fireproof glasses. Serves 24.

(The tea, rock sugar and cloves are all available at SensibiliTeas, Cinnamon sticks are currently out of stock, but one tablespoon of cinnamon chips from SensibiliTeas will work fine as well)

SensibiliTeas will be open Thursday 12/23 1pm-5pm and Friday 12/24 10am-5pm.
Happy Holidays!
