Apple Infused Tea
Since the beginning of the month, I have been starting every morning with a 30-minute run. After doing so for about 3 weeks, I can say that this has been the best transformation that has happened to me during this prolonged period of WFH! The morning exercise really helped me to start the day on a productive note and made me more conscious about the importance of self-care. I ran on my home elliptical machine (which was previously collecting dust for more than a year ever since I shifted house) with a trolley by my side where I always have a bottle of cold drink prepared the night before. This was how this apple infused tea come about, it is one of the drinks I had by my side to stay hydrate throughout and after the run.

I really love this apple infused tea because it had an added bonus of yummy apples which I can eat immediately after my exercise.
ONLY TWO MAIN INGREDIENTS
APPLE & TEA BAG
The ingredients are very simple. One red apple (or use half red and half green like I do), one thinly sliced Thai lime (you may omit this if you don’t like the lime flavour in your apple tea) and a cold brew tea bag. This is a really simple and basic recipe which you can add on to if you like – such as sprig of mint, a cinnamon stick or any herbs.
I used Muji’s organic tea apple & honey bush cold brew tea bag. You can actually just use any favourite cold brew tea bag (or even bottled tea).
STEP-BY-STEP PHOTOS (APPLE INFUSED TEA)
In a half-litre glass bottle (I am using Ikea 365+ glass carafe), add the tea bag, apple and lime. Then fill the bottle to the brim with clean drinking water. Put the bottle in the fridge to chill until ready to enjoy.
This is my bottle of apple infused tea after 4 hours. After I took these pictures, I put the bottle into the fridge to chill and infuse for a few more hours. I usually make this just before I sleep to let it chill in the fridge overnight, so that I can enjoy this drink first thing in the morning during & after my workout.
