Franklin's Fix Iced Tea

Print Email

60 oz boiling water
4 Apples (preferable red)
2 medium sized bags of dried cranberries
10-12 tablespoons of ceylon black tea (depending on your love of briskness)
local honey

Fill a large pot (enough to hold 60oz of water). Thinly slice 4 red apples and add them to water along with dried cranberries. Stir. Bring to a boil. Fill a few large paper tea filters with 10-12 tablespoons of ceylon black tea and add to pot. Turn off flame and move to cool burner. Steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea and let water cool. Pour liquid into airtight pitchers (yes, keep the apples and cranberries) and refrigerate over night. In the morning, remove apples and cranberries and strain for pure iced tea.

Serve & Enjoy!
