To make Sweetheart Cinnamon Tea Glaze:

  1. In a small saucepan, bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil. Place 6 tea bags in a small bowl. Pour boiling water over tea bags and allow to steep for 6 minutes. Remove and strain tea bags.Place powdered sugar in a large bowl and gradually pour in tea mixture into the powdered sugar, while continually whisking. Whisk until smooth and desired consistency.
  2. NOTE: You may not need all of the tea for your icing. If you happen to thin out your glaze too much, you can always repair it by whisking in more powdered sugar.
