For an alcoholic drink, add medium or dark rum to cups before serving. Also tastes good chilled, without rum, and can be served in summer as iced tea.


1 teaspoon whole cloves
1-inch stick cinnamon
3 quarts water
2-1/2 tablespoons black tea
Juice of 3 oranges
Juice of 1-1/2 lemons
1/2 to 1 cup sugar


Tie spices loosely in cheesecloth bag and bring to a boil in water. Add tea, tied loosely in another cheesecloth bag, and allow to stand for 5 minutes. Remove bags of spices and tea. If juices are pulpy, strain them, then stir into tea. Add sugar to taste.
