We learned how to use spices to make fancy drinks and teas at Eagle Rock Elementary and we started with some gold ole Spiced Cider. We focused on the class on mulling spices. The students started the class by going around to each of the spices, drawing, smelling, and writing down what it reminds them of. A lot of them said the cloves reminded them of the holidays, but the All Spice reminded them of POISON!
We then each got our own tea bag and put a pinch of each spice into our bags to take home. I then demonstrated how to make apple cider by boiling the apple juice and steeping the tea bag. Voila! Delicious holiday treat!
