This drink is the most practical birthday gift ever.

On my birthday, my elder sister taught me how to make this drink and told me to drink it every morning. Then 6 weeks later, it helped me get back into any of my favorite jeans.

Things to prepare:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 4 whole allspice
  • 2 individual black tea bags
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple juice or cider
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Step to start:

  • In a small saucepan, bring water and allspice just to a boil; add tea bags. Remove from the heat; cover and steep for 3 minutes. Discard allspice and tea bags. Stir in apple juice and honey; heat through.
