Apple Cider Rooibos Hot Toddy

Apple Cider Rooibos Hot Toddy

1 1/2 cups unfiltered apple juice
3/4 cup water
1 whole cinnamon stick
5 slices fresh ginger
1 tsp ground ginger
2 bags rooibos tea (or decaf chai tea)

1. Add apple juice, water, lemon, cinnamon stick, fresh ginger, ground ginger, and salt + pepper to a small saucepan and heat over medium high heat. Bring to a simmer, then turn off heat and add rooibos tea bags. Steep for 10-12 minutes, still on the stove (heat turned off).
2. Sample and adjust flavor as needed. If you find it needs more sweetness, add 1-2 tsp of pure maple syrup (optional).
3. Remove tea bags and divide between two serving glasses, with additional slices of lemon. Serve hot.
4. Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep covered well in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Reheat on the stovetop.
