2 (10cm) cinnamon sticks
0.5 tsp whole black peppercorns
2 to 3 whole cloves
3 to 5 whole cardamom pods
5 coin-size pieces fresh ginger
2 (2cm) strips fresh orange peel
2 (2cm) strips fresh lemon peel
1.2L cold water
4 bags orange-pekoe tea
700ml apple cider
1 orange, juiced
1) Lightly crush the cinnamon, peppercorns, cloves, and cardamom pods in a mortar and pestle or on a cutting board with the bottom of a saucepan.

2) Transfer the spices to a medium saucepan, add the ginger and citrus peels. Add the water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, partially covered, until aromatic, and the cinnamon stick opens a little, about 10 mins.

3) Add the tea bags to the pan and immediately remove from the heat. Set aside to steep for 3 to 4 mins. Remove the tea bags, and add the apple juice and orange juice. Return the pan to a medium heat and warm, taking care not to let the tea boil. Serve hot.
