A warm, relaxing drink perfect for the coldest days, this Labrador tea cider is a cross between a tea and apple cider. With aromatic cinnamon, a hint of lemon and the incredible Boreal Heartland Labrador Tea, it's a real treat.
In a large pot, combine apple juice, cinnamon stick, lemon juice and grated ginger. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer about five minutes. Remove cinnamon stick.
Pour boiling water over one tablespoon Labrador tea (about 20 full leaves if using whole leaves), loose or in a tea ball. Let steep for five minutes. Strain leaves or remove tea ball and add brewed tea to apple juice. Sweeten with maple syrup if desired.
