I do love a nice warm sweet cup of tea! I’ve never been a coffee drinker, even though I wish I could like the stuff, because it’s a lot easier to get at. Ever tried to get a hot cup of tea on an airplane?
Unless you are going to London, you are pretty much relegated to lukewarm weak tea after all the coffee drinkers are served. Sigh.
So I am always on the lookout for new and interesting tea recipes, and I’m loving this sweet and soothing apple lemon version that is, as the saying goes, both good and good for you.
Hello, sweet and delicious apple lemon tea. I love you.
You make it by boiling up water, apple juice, cloves, allspice and lemon juice, and then you use that instead of water to steep a bunch of English breakfast tea (or good old Lipton will work just fine too.)
Once the tea is brewed, pour it through a strainer to collect all the solids and there you have it – sweet, spicy, satisfying deliciousness that will keep your hand (mostly) out of the cookie jar.
So on that note, Happy, Healthy New Year to you!Print
