1tbsp black tea leaves - either a strong brew from Assam or English Breakfast sachets or loose teas.
1/4 teaspoon cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 cups water
1/4 cup black cherry juice (you can use more, I wouldn’t recommend more than 1/2 cup)
Maraschino cherries with stems
Combine tea leaves, cocoa powder and cinnamon.
Boil water and pour over tea/spices. Steep for 5 min then strain.
Cool completely then add cherry juice.
Serve over ice with maraschino cherries.
(Add a splash of cream and/or "spike it" to make it extra special!)
