Holiday Tea: How to make your home smell amazing during the holidays!

posted in: Home, Recipes | 1

Today, I am sharing a great recipe that not only smells and tastes amazing but is an appetite suppressant, which I could definitely use during the holiday season. Lemon and cinnamon are naturally appetite suppressants and they are two of the three ingredients for this holiday treat. I love that I can drink this tea without any sweetener.

Ingredients:

4 packets of spiced apple tea (I get caffeine free tea because I drink way too much coffee during the day to add more to my diet.)
3 lemons
1 stick of cinnamon
4 cups of water

Here are the brands that I use (available from Publix):

Slice the lemons in half while the water is boiling on the stove.

Once the water is boiled, add the 4 packets and cinnamon stick.

unnamed-20

Puncture the lemon halves with a fork.

Squeeze the lemons into the boiling tea (turn heat down so you don’t burn yourself).

unnamed-15

Take the bags and sticks out of the pot. (You may also have to retrieve some of the lemon seeds)

unnamed-16

Serve with a cinnamon stick and enjoy!

Jordan loves it when I make this tea because of how it makes my apartment smell.

Ciao for now!
