Put 4 litres of Apple Juice, the sugar and the spices in a large pan and make a syrup, ie don't boil!

Whilst the AJ/spice syrup is steeping put the rest of the Apple Juice and tea in your fermenting vessel.

Add the AJ/spice syrup to the fermenting vessel, stir to mix.

Pitch yeast - upto you, make a starter or not....I've done both and I didn't notice a difference in the finished product.
