A collaboration with The Silver Lady
As Samhain, the witch's New Year, approaches, there's no better way to connect with the energies of this mystical season than with a warm, fragrant cup of Spiced Apple Cinnamon Tea. This delightful brew not only warms the body but also nourishes the soul. Whether you're celebrating Samhain with a coven or simply honoring the occasion on your own, this tea blend will infuse your day with the enchantment of the season. Samhain Tea Blend: Spiced Apple Cinnamon Tea
4 bags of chai or black tea
3-4 Honey Crisp apple peels (while Honeycrisp is the variety listed- Fuji & Pink Lady are also good choices!)
1-2 tsp. of hot honey (Always use locally sourced honey when you can! It makes a difference! It's also the most natural immune booster there is!!)
2 cinnamon sticks
A splash of oat milk or almond milk
4 cups of water
In a medium pot, bring the water to a boil, and then add the tea bags.
Next, add the apple peels, honey, and cinnamon sticks. Allow this aromatic concoction to simmer for about 5 minutes, letting the flavors meld together in harmony.
Remove the pot from heat, stir in your choice of milk, and take a moment to inhale the wonderful aroma that fills the room.
Pour the tea into your favorite cup or mug, take a seat, and savor the magic of this Spiced Apple Cinnamon Tea.
