For a while I tried to make this tea into a premixed blend that could be stored but found it difficult to get a strong apple flavor without the use of artificial flavoring (which is not what I want to do). So I decided on a different technique and this gave me the strong apple flavor I wanted with using fresh ingredients. Also for this recipe, I dried my own apples. The instructions for that I will give in another post or if you really want to know just send me a message!
8 oz Water
½ cup Dried apples
1 inch Cinnamon Stick
¼ tsp Cloves
1 tsp Black/Rooibos Tea
- In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil
- Throw in the dried apples, cinnamon stick and cloves
- Simmer for 10 minutes
- After 10 minutes, turn off oven top and add in the tea. Depending on the tea, let it steep for 3-4 if using black tea or 5-10 if using rooibos tea
- Pour through baby sieve and enjoy!
