Are you cold and down? Make a Mood Changer Tea

I am not a tea lover.
I don't even drink water.
I don't fancy liquid stuff.
I don't know why and I am annoyed because water is fundamental for the body to function properly.
I have to force myself to drink any sort of liquid.
Except for fizzy energising drinks.
Yes, that's the only drink I love. But I don't drink it often because it's not that healthy. Is it?

Anyway, let's move on.

I am a recipe inventer. I am that, I am. My Romanian blog, De Gustibus Non Est Disputandam, is the incontestable proof of that. Almost all the recipes published there (@400) are "flour from my bag." Which means that I invented them.

For more recipes (gluten-free, on-a-budget, vegan, vegetarian, easy, brave, unique, unusual, etc.) please visit this blog:

At the moment, I am baking a vegan cake with Raffaello. Which doesn't make it vegan really. Bloody Raffaello. Never mind.

I am open-minded, brave and curious of odd and new tastes. Nothing scares me. Except for insects. Bleah....
Some might say I am crazy, but that's their opinion.
Despite all of the negative introduction, I have invented a few tea recipes too.
Some are so brave that I decided not to publish them until I am famous. Then, I'll make money with them.

Today I want you to try this tea made with fresh ingredients. Like apple and cinnamon.

I have doubts about the freshness of the cinnamon, but I guess that doesn't count much as cinnamon cannot be used fresh. At least, it's what I've been told. Go figure.

I am sure that this combination is from antiquity, but I don't know how many of you actually think to make it at home.

All you need is one apple and a  stick of cinnamon. Powder (cinnamon) is good too.
If you drink your tea sweet, then you need sugar, honey or sweetener.
  • Cut the apple in slices and put them in a teapot. No, not like in the image. That's a carafe. I don't have a transparent jug for this purpose. Sorry. 
  • Add the cinnamon stick.
  • Boil the water and add it on. 
  • Let it brew for 5 (or 10) minutes. 
  • Drink it hot.

How many mugs can you make from an apple and a cinnamon stick? 
It depends on how strong you like your tea.
I would say 4 mugs.

But, you can add more boiled water on top like other 2 times. So you could have 12 mugs or more.

It smells divine and it tastes divine. It reminds you of Christmas. 
It warms you up, not only physically, but spiritually too. It lifts your mood. Honestly. Try it. 

It's perfect for cold times, especially for rainy days.
