A favorite of apple grower Yukihiro Abe!
Black tea leaves
Rinse the apple and slice it. Leave the skin on.
Add 3.5 grams of black tealeaves to a teapot with 400 cc of boiled water and steep for two minutes.
Put the apple slices into another teapot and pour the black tea over them.
Wait at least another a minute.
The key to great apple tea is waiting for it to steep a bit and then sipping it slowly. The apple flavor increasingly penetrates the tea as time goes by--which is one of the great joys that only comes from making it with real apples.
