Winter is finally here. One of the things that really go well with this cold weather is Tea. Is it because you can immerse yourself into the warm aroma without feeling the heat or because drinking something warm in cold weather just feels better is anyone’s guess.
During this time of the year however, tea somehow starts tasting better for me. Bored with our regular black tea, I decided to make something better and better it turned out indeed.
Flavored tea is the most admired Middle Eastern drink which is enjoyed even with meals as it carries great nutritional value.
Apple tea, specifically, originates from Turkey. It is brewed with apple peels, cinnamon, whole spices, honey and green tea bags or green tea leaves. These are the perfect ingredients to keep our body detoxified and warm. Moreover, if you have a sore throat, add ginger and pepper. It will provide immediate relief by soothing the throat.
All you need really is leftover apple peels from any seasonal apple recipe. Don’t throw them away! Instead use them to make the delicious, scented tea. The added bonus is that your house will smell amazing while apples are simmering away. Enjoy!
