Slow Cooker Spiced Tea Recipe

I love the idea of healthy drinks at the holidays and I also love using whole cinnamon sticks and other whole spices and letting it mull for hours so the house smells delicious. Try this Slow Cooker Spiced Tea Recipe with Apple and Cinnamon for something different from heavy cider or coffee!

Easy and deliciously healthy spiced tea recipe simmered in the slow cooker!

Slow Cooker Spiced Tea Recipe with Apple and Cinnamon

This spiced tea came out really good, but the first time I made it the taste was too much black tea and not enough apple and spice. So I’ve adjusted it. You can adjust the sweetness to your liking – I generally don’t like things too sweet.

There’s nothing better than hanging around the house for a holiday or just on a random Sunday afternoon with this delicious aroma making the house smell cozy and festive. Most of these ingredients you probably already have on hand during this time of year so you can throw it together after breakfast on Sunday and enjoy it all afternoon.

Key Ingredients for Spiced Tea

  • Apple Juice: The apple juice is cooked low and slow with so many other flavors but you want to make sure to use good quality apple juice. I like the apple juice that is NOT from concentrate.
  • Whole Spices: I use whole spices for the most distinct flavor and it makes the drink look more attractive.
  • Sweet and Tart Apples: You want to choose a ripe apple that is in season like macintosh, cortland or empire.
  • Black tea: My go-to tea has always been black tea. It has antioxidant properties, may boost heart health, helps with cholesterol, gut health and blood pressure among many other benefits!
