As a lover of all things autumn, apple cider is dear to both my heart and my taste buds. Sweet, tangy, and refreshing, it’s like being wrapped in all of the beautiful, colorful leaves of fall and rolled down a soft grassy hill in the sunshine. Bliss. However, the nights grow a bit chillier and when my teeth start to chatter I pour my jug of cider into a pot and wait for it to heat up. Mmm, yes, sweet and spicy mulled apple cider could possibly be better than cold apple cider, but that all depends on your current body temperature and your preference of hot or cold drinks.
My Trick For How To Make Mulled Apple Cider Easy
Now technically, a mulled drink is not only hot, but has added spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, orange peel, and cloves. I discovered how fun it is to grab the containers off my spice shelf and start tossing in pinches of this and shakes of that. Due to the frequent desire for a single serving of mulled cider, I found an even easier, quicker, and in my opinion, better way of mulling your cider (if that’s a phrase). Here is the easy trick to make mulled apple cider quickly: combine apple cider with another popular cold-weather drink- tea.
Good Earth’s Sweet & Spicy tea is the most pungent, flavorful tea I’ve ever had the pleasure of sipping, and since a year ago it’s been a tea staple in my cupboard. Sweet & Spicy tea contains cinnamon, and orange peel, two of the common spices used in mulled cider. In addition, this herbal tea contains rosehips, anise seed, papaya leaves, lemongrass, chamomile, peppermint, and ginger root, all which have their own supply of vitamins, antioxidants, and other healthy stuff. So, here’s how to quickly make mulled cider using Good Earth’s Sweet & Spicy tea or a cinnamon tea.

Simply let 2 bags of Sweet & Spicy tea steep in a ½ gallon of apple cider in a pot on the stove, or a single bag in a mug warmed up in the microwave until preferred pungency – a delicious, quick, and easy trick for making spicy mulled apple cider. This then becomes a drink you can even take with you on the road! Just warm up the cider beforehand, pour it in a coffee mug, and drop the tea bag in. Ba-da-bing, you’ve got mulled cider by the time you get to your destination!
