Cointreau spiced tea

Yesterday I was holed up inside with the air-conditioning set on a balmy 27 degrees. 

I was cold. 

It was warranted. Really. 



As we are well and truly in the midst of winter now, I decided to make this warming tea using one of my favourite liqueurs. 


Super easy, it took me no time at all. The Cointreau adds a lovely subtle sweetness to the tea so you don't have to add any extra sugar. 

I used Tetley Cinnamon Orange tea bags to make this but only because Mum recently brought over a box of it for me to try. Regular black tea will work nicely too - just remember to not brew it too long though (unless you like it strong).




ingredients
Cinnamon twills ( 1 per glass)
Black or orange flavoured tea 
Orange Peel
Cointreau Liqueur

method
Simply brew a cup of tea as you normally would. Then add a few pieces of orange peel, one cinnamon twill and 1 tablespoon of cointreau to each cup of tea.

Sit back, pump up the air con or heater and enjoy.

Guaranteed to warm you up from the inside! This sounds delish!

I had never thought of mixing cointreau and tea but this sounds like a good match :)
