I like Indian milk teas like Masala Chai, Adrak Wali Chai, or Lemongrass Chai, but I can only drink a small cup once a day.

Instead, I like to sip various green, herbal, or fruit tea flavors throughout the day. I drink them chilled in summer and piping hot in winter. This apple and cinnamon tea is my recent favorite.

About This Recipe

Apple and Cinnamon Tea is a refreshing beverage that combines the fruity, sweet, and slightly tart flavors of apples with cinnamon’s warm, spicy taste.

Depending on the type of tea used as a base (like black or green tea), some may also note a hint of earthiness and mild astringency. The flavor is usually comforting and reminiscent of fall or winter due to the warming cinnamon spice.

It is often consumed for its potential health benefits, including its antioxidant properties and ability to aid digestion. Read more about its health benefits Here.

Enjoy it hot or iced.

Ingredients

Apples – Granny Smith apples are the best for making apple and cinnamon tea. They are tart and slightly sweet, which pairs well with the spiciness of the cinnamon. They also hold up well to boiling and infusing, which is necessary when making tea.

However, you can use any variety of apples that are easily available to you.

Cinnamon Sticks – Do not use cinnamon powder, as it will seep into the ready tea even after you strain it.

Tea – I used loose black tea, but you can also use black tea bags.

Sweetener – Use any sweetener of your choice.

You can add other spices like cloves, nutmeg, or ginger for additional flavor complexity.
