Sick Tea

A Starbucks Secret Menu Treat

Why in the world have I lived this long and never steeped my tea in hot apple juice? Why people? It's an idea that's so simple, yet so incredibly yummy, it makes you want to slap yourself for not thinking of it years ago! By now, I'm sure you've all heard of Starbuck's "secret menu."  Well, this is something from that secretive list that is actually worth ordering! One of my sister's friends was a Starbuck's barista and told her about this delicious treat. It tastes like Russian Tea, or Wassle, but way easier. Why is it called "Sick Tea"? Well, I guess because it is amazing when you are sick! Next time you're at Starbucks, try ordering one, most baristas know what it is, but if they give you a funny look, say you want a steamed apple juice with a passion fruit tea bag. If you're feeling fancy get a sprinkle of cinnamon on it as well. When making this at home, get creative! Try different tea flavors, add a splash of pineapple or orange juice. Are you or someone you know not a huge fan of hot tea? Well odds are you will enjoy this because, where there's a meal, there's a way!
