As soon as the temperatures turn chilly, every afternoon I have a ritual of making a cup of tea. Recently, my 10 year old started to join me and she became a huge fan of tea. We love peppermint tea, orange tea and now this Cranberry Apple Tea. Best part - it's cooked in a slow cooker and kept warm all day. Just fill up your mug whenever you are ready!

There is no dealing with hot boiling water here so I let my kiddos even do the prep. All they need to do, is place everything in the slow cooker and turn it on. We can even get it done in on a weekend morning, before we leave the house to do shopping, go for a walk, visit family and friends. Then we come home to a cozy, warm, fragrant sweet tea to fill up our mugs with.

We were invited to try one of a few recipes using products participating in this promotion, and quickly decided on the Autumn Apple Tea recipe from Lipton. My daughter decided to add fresh cranberries because we have a ton of them and they are our favorite fall and winter flavor. I decided we should make it all in a slow cooker. That way it's ready, warm for us to enjoy all day long.

    My mom always makes what she calls Christmas Tea--and it is very similar to this. I can't wait to give your slow cooker version a try!

    Such a fun idea! I recently made a chai apple cider in the slow cooker and it was a huge hit with my family. I have a feeling they'd love this one, too
