Mulled Tea

Christmas may be over, but winter certainly is not! In fact, it looks like it’s only just begun in my country – the temperature dropped from around 10°C at Christmas to -5°C last night. So although Christmas is now far in the past, the season for mulling whatever’s in our eyesight is still going strong. So I got that idea – what if I tried to mull some tea? I quickly jumped into action, and here’s the result!

I love mulled wine (who doesn’t?). Sadly, drinking wine all day long isn’t the best idea – for numerous reasons. However, that doesn’t mean we have to give up on the warming qualities of mulled beverages! Simply replace wine with tea… and you can enjoy your aromatic drink any time you want. It’s also one kids will be able to share!

For 2 mugs you’ll need:

  • 1 mug of tea (1 teabag brewed in 250ml water)
  • 1/2 mug water
  • 1/2 apple
  • 1 tangerine
  • Spices: cinnamon, anise, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, pepper – start with a sprinkle of each and adjust to your taste as you cook your tea
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons raspberry/cherry syrup

Chop up the apple and tangerine.


Put the fruits in a pot. Add the rest of the ingredients – tea and water, spices, honey and syrup.


Put the pot on the stove and bring your drink to simmer. Let it cook for about 10 minutes – until apples are soft.



Split your tea between two mugs. Drink warm!


Enjoy. 🙂

  1. I will have to try this! I used to live in the UK and got quite fond of mulled apple cider too. Now that’s neither very practical to drink all day nor very available here (Hungary) so we started making mulled apple juice. Same idea just apple juice based. 👌
