Turkish Apple Tea
When it comes to fruit tisanes, Turkish Apple Tea is a personal favourite of many here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company (there is a good reason for that, too!). This tea was first created in Turkey, yet it has since spread throughout the world owing to its mouthwateringly fruity flavour; boasting sharp, bold, and delectable tastes of both apple and pineapple, which together form the base of the infusion.
Be it summer or winter, Turkish Apple Tea is rarely left in the cupboard for long periods of time as it can be enjoyed as a steaming hot brew or, alternatively, as a refreshing Iced Tea. Alas, it is no real wonder that Turkish Apple Tea is one of our most popular flavoured teas. So, what are you waiting for? We guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
For many, imagining the hustle-and-bustle of Turkish life often takes place on the streets of old Istanbul, nestled between the market stands and shops of days-gone-by. Turkish Apple Tea honours the age-old traditions of Turkish culture, while also adding a 21st Century spin on a true classic!
Typically, coffee is most famously associated with Turkey (please see our Turkish Coffee if this has peaked your interest), however; tea has an equally important role, and has been a popular commodity within the country for many hundreds of years.
Our very own Turkish Apple Tea, meanwhile, is actually a fruit tisane, and does not contain any leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant (or ‘tea plant’). This comes with its benefits, such as being completely caffeine free. It also means our Turkish Apple Tea somewhat breaks free from convention and, as a result, can just be enjoyed for its delicious flavour alone.
