Apple cinnamon tea
To make this delicious tea, wash and chop one apple and keep it aside. In the meantime, take a vessel over medium flame and add in 2 cups of water. Then add in 3 tulsi leaves (basil leaves), then add in the chopped apples along with a 1 inch whole cinnamon. Brew this tea for sometime and once the flavour and pulp of apple is dissolved in the tea. Turn off the flame and strain the tea and then add in ½ a teaspoon of honey. The presence of minerals, vitamin C, K, B1 and antioxidants will give your body the right boost of immunity and the use of cinnamon and potassium in apple helps in thinning of the blood which helps in improving the blood pressure levels and prevents clogging up of arteries.
Another common way of making this tea is by chopping fresh apples and sun drying them. Store these dried apple chunks and you can brew them with your regular green tea and indulge in the goodness.
Mixed fruit tea
Another refreshing blend you can prepare anytime without putting in much effort is by washing and chopping your favourite fruits like pineapples, berries, and green apples. After chopping, mash the fruits using a masher and pour them into the cups. In the meantime, heat a vessel with water and brew 2 bags of chamomile tea and ½ and inch of fresh ginger. Once done pour this tea using a strainer into the cups and top it with a sugar cube or ½ teaspoon honey and enjoy this hearty fruity blend anytime.
Winter season is around the corner and it’s time to swing into the festive vibes with this exotic tea recipe. You can either go for fresh plum which does have a tarty taste or you can deseed, chop them into fine bits or strips and sun dry them.

Then take a vessel with 2 cups of water, add in the chopped plum into the lukewarm water along with a dash of nutmeg and 2-teaspoon of sugar, stir nicely and strain it into the cups and add in ½ teaspoon honey.
