This caffeine-free blackberry iced tea is flavored with cinnamon and ginger.

Ingredients

  • 8 3-inch-long cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 cup unsweetened cranberry juice
  • Sugar substitute, to taste
  • Ice cubes, crushed

Directions

In a large saucepan, heat water to just before boiling. Add tea bags, 2 of the cinnamon sticks and ginger. Remove from heat, cover and let steep for about 15 minutes.
