    We went to the most fantastic Turkish cafe in country Victoria on the weekend and had this beautiful spiced apple tea. Does anyone know what it's called? I normally hate tea but this was beautiful and didn't need sugar or anything!

    Sorry, I could not get to the computer for day or so! So saw your request only now.

    I suggest you post your interesting request in the Greek Forum. I have no idea what this tea could have been.

    Turkey does not fall under the African and Middle Eastern Cooking Forum. It would be too much icon_eek.gif for us hosts here to handle! icon_biggrin.gif

    Just a quick FYI, much of Turkey is right smack dab in the Middle East. icon_eek.gif

    it's called apple tea and you can get boxes of instant granules ( well , at least in turkey you do). i brought back a box with me myself but still havent tried it out.
    i think i have an authentic recipe for it somewhere, will look it up and post it here.

    I have a recipe for this tea, or at least something similar. I'll try to post it as soon as I can track it down icon_smile.gif

    Meant to get back to this post before now. icon_redface.gif I have tried such a tea in a few Turkish restaurants in Scotland. I know that there is a variety available in granules which is also flavoured with mint along with the apple. My husband likes to prepare Turkish Apple Tea which was a recipe we got from a magazine many moons ago. It is healthful and good served piping hot or ice cold.

    Take one litre of pure fresh pressed apple juice and add either two large cinnamon sticks, or two sachets of cinnamon tea. This should contain ground cinnamon, not tea.
    We bring this to the boil and boil for about 5 minutes. Then the cinnamon stick or sachets should be removed and the tea can be sweetened to taste if required, and chilled to serve with ice and sprigs of mint, or enjoyed hot. icon_smile.gif

    Hajar, thanks for that information icon_smile.gif

    My parents are from Cyprus they consider themselves Turkish Cypriots. I'm not to sure were they are located in the eyes of the world by they consider themselves as Europeans.

    It's interesting that Zaar puts Turkey in the Middle East section, I only noticed it as I was going to add a Turkish recipe and was looking in the Europe Section.
