How to make orange cinnamon breakfast tea
Ready to see how easy it is to make a flavorful breakfast tea to start your day?
Step 1: Place the cinnamon stick, cloves, strips of orange zest, and tea bag into a 1-cup glass measuring cup.
Step 2: Pour boiling water up to the 1-cup mark.
Step 3: Let the tea steep for 5 minutes.
Step 4: Discard the tea bag, then strain the mixture into a mug.
That’s it! Garnish with an orange slice and a cinnamon stick if desired, cozy up with your favorite book, and enjoy.
Variations for your morning tea
Looking for even more orange flavor? You could add a little fresh-squeezed orange juice after steeping!
Just keep in mind that this will increase the amount of sugar in your tea. You could also use an orange-spiced tea bag to add more flavor.
Avoiding caffeine or making tea before bed? Use a decaf tea bag to skip the jitters.
Want to make iced tea instead? Just make this recipe ahead of time, stick it in the refrigerator, and enjoy chilled over ice!
Want to double, triple, or even quadruple the batch and store some for later? Just increase the ingredients based on how many servings you want to make, brew as usual, then store the extra tea covered in the refrigerator for up to a week.
When you’re ready to enjoy, you can simply pour a mug and reheat it in the microwave. You could also pour it over ice to enjoy some orange cinnamon iced tea!
