    I love preparing orange tea. It's mild , subtle and full of orangey flavour. For the recipe you boil water and then add thick orange slices alongwith a small stick of cinnamon, little tea powder(half tsp) and sugar to taste. Let it come to a roaring boil and immediately switch off the flame. Strain it with pressing the ingredients in the strainer or else it will taste bitter. Enjoyy this flavourful orange infused tea
