Orange Clove Tea 

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Makes 2 cups of tea

Ingredients: 
2 cups of water  
Peel from half an orange
3-4 Spice Cloves 
1 black tea bag  
Sugar or stevia to taste (optional)
    Process:
    1. Bring water to boil in small pot.
    2. Turn fire to low. With your fingers, crush the round into a powder, and add to the water. 
    Add clove stems and orange peels to water as well. Cover and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. 
    3. Turn fire off. Add tea bag into pot. When tea is ready (dark orange color), pour through fine strainer into two mugs.
      Notes: 
      -A very thin, oily layer will appear on the surface of the tea. That’s the clove oil and orange oil, which provide you with many wonderful health benefits. 
      -Wash orange peels thoroughly under warm water before adding it to the pot.
