Now, as any good North American will tell you, when there are apples, pie is sure to follow. And as any good tea master will tell you, when you have a superb flavor profile, as you do with apple pie in its marriage of tart crisp apple and delicate spice mélange, a tea blend is sure to follow. We developed New York Apple Spice with the goal of capturing all the fruity nuance of spiced apples and the lush orchards they come from. A pure herb and fruit tea, New York Apple spice offers a character as robust as the city it's named after and the vitamin and antioxidant power of hibiscus, rosehip and apples. The blend is rounded out by the addition of cinnamon and cloves to add a pointed layer of spice to the cup. Caffeine free and stunning over ice - a spicy cup you'll want to revisit time and again.
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 2 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Place 12 slightly heaping teaspoons of herb & fruit blend or 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml over the herb & fruit blend. Steep for 5-10 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the tea or removing the tea bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot brew since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.
