This infusion can be a soothing antidote on a chilly winter day -- but it's equally delicious chilled and served on ice.


  • 4 cups water

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated cinnamon

  • 1 Granny Smith apple, seeded and coarsely chopped, plus slices for serving

  • 4 strips orange zest, from ½ orange

  • cup loose green tea


  1. Combine water, honey, 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 the green tea leaves, pressing all the juices from the apple. Let steep for 1 minute. Strain outthe tea, reheat if necessary, and serve. Garnish with apple slices.
