French Apple & Cinnamon Tea

This recipe is from a book entitled Drink to Your Health by Annie McIntyre.  Ms. McIntyre says, “The traditional combination of apple and cinnamon works well in this sweet and spicy tea.  The tart flavor and cold properties of the apples are balanced by the sweetness and warming properties of the honey and cinnamon.  Jean Valnet, the French phytotherapist, recommends apple tea should be drunk daily to prevent cold and flue viruses and to ward off arthritis and gout.”
