Cinnamon Cranberry Christmas Tea

Looking for a tea to serve this time of year? This is a delicious Cinnamon Cranberry Christmas Tea will warm you this holiday season!

There is actually no tea at all in this delicious hot drink. Made it for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. Used a big dutch oven and it filled the whole thing. You could also make it in a slow cooker, although I haven’t tried.  Put the leftover drink in a pitcher and refrigerate it. Serve cold and it tastes like punch.  My family loved it!
