A great antidote to a brisk fall day, like today!

Green Apple Spiced Tea
Serves 3 to 4

4 cups filtered water
1/2 tsp spoonable stevia
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp freshly grated cinnamon or 1 cinnamon stick
1 Granny Smith apple, seeded and coarsely chopped (reserve 4 thin slices for garnish)
4 thick strips of fresh orange zest
1/3 cup loose organic green tea OR 2 green tea bags

1.)  Combine water, stevia, nutmeg, cinnamon, apple, and orange zest in medium pot; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes.

2.) Cover, remove from heat, and let steep 15 minutes.  Strain through a fine mesh sieve over a bowl or pot, pressing out all of the juice from the apple.  Add the green tea leaves.  Let steep for 1 minute. Strain out the tea leaves and serve.  So simple and delicious!
