The weather is changing, and summer will knock on our doorstep before we blink. This is when I start working on my refreshing beverage recipes, which I can make all through the summer and keep myself and my family hydrated.

Iced teas are a great playground for experimentation. You can add a variety of flavors to the classic iced tea and create a new, refreshing drink. I tried my hands at Apple, and the result was pretty awesome. Sharing it with you all!

About Apple Iced Tea

Apple Iced Tea is a twist on your usual iced tea. Black tea is flavored with apple juice or apple-flavored soda, mint leaves, and lime juice. This sweet tea makes for a great non-alcoholic summer beverage.

Making this sweet apple tea at home is easy; you can control the sweetness according to your preferences.

This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled. Make it in a large pitcher for your next summer party.

To save time, you can brew the black tea in advance and assemble the iced tea when ready to serve. Once assembled, serve it immediately.

You can even freeze the brewed tea and use it later.

Ingredients

Tea leaves – I have used loose black tea leaves (chai patti), but you can also use green tea or hibiscus tea. Loose tea can be easily replaced with tea bags.

Sugar – I use organic brown sugar in my kitchen and hence have used that to make this tea. You can use any granulated sugar for sweetening.

Sugar-free substitutes like stevia or monk fruit also work well in this recipe.

You can also replace sugar with honey or maple syrup. Don’t add it while the tea is cooking; add it when the pan is off heat.

Apple Juice adds a refreshing, fruity taste to this drink. For a fizzy drink, use apple-flavored soda instead of apple juice.

Lime juice – Increase or decrease the amount as per your liking. You can also use fresh lemon juice in place of lime juice.

Mint – Make it super refreshing by adding some fresh mint leaves.

Add a cinnamon stick to the tea to make apple cinnamon tea.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make apple juice tea ahead of time?

Yes, you can brew and refrigerate the tea for up to a day. When ready to serve, assemble the drink. For a summer treat, you can freeze the ready drink in popsicle molds.

How to make green apple juice tea?

Use green apple juice instead of red apple juice, and reduce the amount of lime juice as green apples are slightly tart.
