Hot Tea Punch Recipe


  • 5 Tea bags
  • 6 cups Water
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 8 whole Cloves
  • 2 Cinnamon sticks
  • 1/3 cup Lemon juice
  • 1 cups Orange juice


  1. Bring water, sugar, cloves and cinnamon to boil in heavy large saucepan over high heat. Boil for about 5-6 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat. Add tea bags. Cover and let steep 10 minutes.
  3. Discard tea bags.
  4. Add orange and lemon juices to punch. Serve hot.

Tip: Don't make coffee with boiling water as the perfect temperature is at 2 degrees below boiling point. Boiling water also depletes the oxygen from the water.
