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.


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.


Puncture the lemon halves with a fork.


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


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


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!
