Meadow Tea

Taking tea in nature brings to the experience a tranquility that surpasses most other venues. A simple pot of tea and a plate of fresh scones can go a long ways in providing an enjoyable and relaxing experience. Such respite calls for a refreshing tea experience. A favorite tea is always perfect! But if you'd like to try something new, here's a recipe that adds an element of fruity freshness to the palate.

Hot Apple Tea

4 cups apple juice
4 teaspoons mild-flavored herbal tea
apple slices
lemon slices

Prepare a teapot by warming with hot water. Discard water. Place 4 teaspoons of herbal tea into a tea sack and place in the teapot. Add apple juice that has been brought to a boil. Steep tea in hot apple juice for 5 minutes. Remove tea sack. Taste tea and add stevia to taste (it won't take much; may omit if the apple juice makes it sweet enough for your preferences). Pour hot apple tea into teacups. Garnish with a apple slice and a lemon slice in each cup.

*Herbal tea bags can be substituted if you prefer. You may also replace herbal tea with your favorite black tea.

*Stevia is a sweet herb. NuNaturals brand in the individual serving packets is my favorite.
