Servings: 2 people
- 1 cup water (240ml)
- 2 cinnamon sticks, rinsed (about 0.4 oz or 10-12g)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons black tea
- juice from 2 navel oranges (just under 1 cup/220-240ml)
- 1-2 tablespoons honey
- plenty of ice
Add water and cinnamon sticks to a small saucepan. Place over medium heat and once the water is about to bubble rapidly, lower the heat to a gentle simmer. Cover and simmer with the lid slightly askew for 4-5 minutes.
After 4-5 minutes, turn off the heat and add black tea to the saucepan. Cover with the lid slightly askew and steep for 4-5 minutes.
Strain the tea and stir in the honey. Let it cool down slightly.
If you have a cocktail shaker, add half of the brewed tea, half of the orange juice and plenty of ice cubes. Shake vigorously. Add some ice to a serving glass and immediately pour the iced tea into the glass.
If you don't have a cocktail shaker, chill the brewed black tea in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. After that, stir the tea with the orange juice. Pour into serving glasses with plenty of ice.
