Something simple, yet soothing to snuggle up with like this cinnamon apple tea. Its rich taste and aroma are like the best of fall in a cup. The light brew is full of organic ingredients with immune-boosting properties—like turmeric and ginger—making it a great drink to sip first thing in the morning.
It’s sweet, spicy, and a great way to chase away an autumn chill. Best of all you need just a handful of ingredients to make it yourself.
Making homemade flavored teas is one of BeautyLeeBar’s favorite ways to keep warm as the days get cooler. Yes, you could use a store-bought bag of apple cinnamon tea, but many are filled with questionable added flavors and are either overly spicy or lacking in real apple flavor. Making your homemade version is easy and notably tastier.

This tea stores well in the fridge, so you can make a batch and sip on it through the week — either warm up or cool if fall hasn’t hit your region yet, as preferred. We found a glass mason jar with a lid that works well for storage.
The longer the infusion steeps, the more fragrant it becomes, so you can experiment with that (and with the spices too!) This herbal mildly spiced elixir is perfect for health and beauty benefits.
We hope you get a chance to make this warm, fragrant infusion and that it wraps you in all the comforts of fall — We are excited for our Beauties to try it!
