This tisane consists of a candy-like hibiscus base with frills of dried orange peel, dried apple, and tart cranberries. The overall flavor is merry to say the least and sure to call on memories of hot cider, cranberry sauce, and dried orange peels tossed in the fireplace to perfume the home.
It also makes for a jovial addition to mulled cider or for serving with dessert after a Thanksgiving feast. In addition, add a teaspoon to a small container of sugar and let it sit for a week. The sugar will become scented by this tea and should be sprinkled over pie crusts before baking or over homemade doughnuts.
