Servings: 4 cups
- 1 tsp dried orange peel
- cinnamon sticks/cinnamon powder optional

For making this tea, use fresh oranges, chop their peels into 1/4th sized pieces
Leave these oranges to dry, ideally in a cool and dry place. Fasten the process by roasting the peels in an oven until they turn slightly crispy.
Crush these peels using a mortar and pestle until they turn into a powder.
Now take a stainless pot with a lid on it and place the crushed and chopped oranges in it. You can also use glass and enamel pots instead of steel.
Bring the water to a boil. If you wish to add cinnamon powder to the tea to enhance the flavor, feel free to add it at this stage.
Let the orange peels steep in the water for 15 minutes.
Use a strainer to pour the tea into a teacup. Add honey or any other sweetener of your choice. Serve the tea hot!
