Apple and cinnamon tea

On these cold days, nothing better than to warm up with a good cup of tea. If its homemade with our own products, tastes even better!

This apple and cinnamon tea is a delight! I’m a super fan of reineta apple and its favour, although not a variety of portuguese origin – but an old french variety – not only because of the fiber they contain, as well as iron and vitamin C, but also for the delicious Tarte Tatin we can make out of them.
This recipe is part of my book “Brunch – more than 150 recipes for perfect mornings” and I hope you enjoy and that keeps you warm!


  • 6 reineta apples
  • 2 sticks of cinnamon, plus an extra to spruce
  • 4 tablespoons of yellow sugar
  • 1 1/2 l of water
  • 10 ice cubes
  • 6 cinnamon sticks to serve


Cut the apples in four parts. Join the water, the apples, the cinnamon sticks and the sugar into the casserole and bring to medium heat. As soon as it is a boil, lower the heat until the apples become soft. Remove from the heat, strain and add a cinnamon stick.
