• 6 cups water
  • 12 blackberry herbal tea bags
  • 8 3-inch-long cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 cup unsweetened cranberry juice
  • Sugar substitute, to taste
  • Ice cubes, crushed

Directions:

In a large saucepan, heat water to just before boiling. Add tea bags, 2 of the cinnamon sticks and ginger. Remove from heat, cover and let steep for about 15 minutes.

Pass the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, placed over a pitcher. Add the juice and sweetener to taste. Refrigerate until very cold.

To serve, fill 6 tall, chilled glasses with crushed ice. Pour the tea over the top of the ice and garnish with cinnamon sticks. Serve immediately.
