Elma Cayi - Turkish Apple Tea

Turkish Apple tea was introduced to the local markets especially for tourists few years ago, this tea have nothing when compared to the traditional Turkish Black tea, this tea is caffeine free, slightly sweetened with mild apple flavour..I found this apple tea here and Binnur, the author of Turkish Cook Book says that Apple tea speeds up metabolism increases the amount of urine, as this tea is prepared by boiling apples and oranges with its skins, the orange skins have citric acid and this citric acid helps for losing weight and the mineral salts found in this apple tea acts as urine remover and blood cleaner..Apple tea also strengthens both the heart and stomach, this apple tea get ready easily and this tea goes for simple ingredients..Sending this apple tea to AWED-Turkey guest hosted by Saveur, event by DK..

Turkish Apple Tea

2nos Red apples
1no Orange
1no Cinnamon stick
2nos Whole cloves
4cups Water
Honey as per need

Dont peel the apples and dont remove the seeds, just slice them as 4pieces, dont peel the orange and slice them as 4pieces..Take the sliced fruits, cinnamon stick, cloves and water in a saucepan, bring everything to boil, put the flame in simmer and cook until the fruits get cooked..Strain the cooked water in a bowl by pushing gently the cooked fruits with a back of spoon to remove the liquid completely..

Pour in tea glasses and add honey as per ur need..Enjoy the warm apple tea..
