Fall is not my favorite season, because it's followed by winter. But one of the things that makes it pretty tolerable is apple cider. Whether it's the chilled version you get in the refrigerated section of the grocery store or the tea bags from The Republic of Tea. For this Spiked Apple Cider Iced Tea I'd definitely recommend purchasing the Republic of Tea tea bags because it has a much more pure apple cider flavor that you don't get with the store stuff.
