Turkish Apple Tea
This is an age old recipe for true Turkish style apple tea, served in the homes for loved ones - no flavoured sugars here!
A fruity-sweet and warming cup of tea, made with real apple pieces, cinnamon and clove.
Add a squeeze of lemon juice for some extra zing, or honey for some extra sweetness.
This tea makes an interesting addition to a dessert menu or as an accompaniment to a cream or custard dessert.
Turkish Apple Tea: 2 teaspoons
Water: 250 ml
Temp: 100*C (simmering water is best, but 'off the boil' water works too)
Time: 5 + mins
Measure the apple tea with the water into a small pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer ingredients until the apple becomes soft, around 5 minutes. Strain the tea by pressing on the apples through a strainer. Add a squeeze of lemon or honey upon serving. No milk please.
