Amazing Apple Iced Tea Recipe
This is so simple to make and can be done on Christmas Day, or made in batches the night before if you are serving a lot of guests.
All you need is (..other than love):
2 Litre (4 cups) still mineral water
2 Cinnamon Quills
10 Teaspoons Turkish Apple Tea (to make 1L/4cups)
1 Red Apple, sliced
1 Lemon, sliced
Handful Mint leaves
This is how you do it:
1. Place tea bags (or loose leaf in a basket infuser) in a large heat proof bowl. Bring mineral water to the boil and pour 1 L over tea bags. Let steep for 15 minutes, then discard the tea bags/leaves.
2. Whilst tea is brewing, place the Turkish Apple Tea in a heat proof bowl or jug and pour in remaining 1L boiling water to dissolve, then add to the tea mixture.
3. Place in fridge to let chill (overnight if possible). Add apple, lemon and mint.
