Apple Tea

Apple Tea

Scorching sun is burning us alive already. Crossing my fingers for few summer showers to cool down the earth :(

Until god hears my request, we need to keep ourselves hydrated with some cold shakes and drinks.

I tasted a bottled drink called "tion" a couple of months back and loved the apple flavoring of tea. Since then I wanted to try replicating it at home and today was the right day to do it since I was gasping for some chilled drink after getting back home from shopping.

Formulated a recipe on mind and quickly mixed them all up to get a super delicious apple flavored tea :)

Its unbelievably tasty that my dad who hates tea cherished this drink and said "Wow" :)

Apple Tea4

Ingredients:

Apple juice - 1/2 cup
Tea powder - 2 tsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Water - 1/4 cup
Honey - 1 tsp
Cinnamon powder - a pinch (Optional)

Apple Tea6

Method:

Add tea powder, cinnamon powder and sugar to quarter cup of water and boil on medium flame for two mins.

Keep it aside to cool for a while and strain it to get decoction.

Mix in apple juice with tea decoction. Stir in some honey for extra sweetness.

Garnish with apple slices and serve chilled with loads of ice cubes.

Enjoy the apple flavored tea :)

Apple Tea2

Tips:

You can make apple juice at home by grinding fresh apples and straining them thoroughly using a cloth.

The addition of honey makes it extra tasty.

Adding cinnamon is absolutely optional and I dint do it since I wanted the apple flavor to dominate.

Note:

The proportion of apple juice and tea is totally upto your taste.

For me the proportion of 70% - apple juice and 30% tea was awesome and loved the apple domination in the drink :)
