  • 8 cups water
  • 3-4 apples washed and quartered
  • 6-8 dried figs
  • lemon wedge optional
  • honey optional
  • cinnamon stick optional


  • Place water, apples and dried figs in a large pot.
  • Bring to boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 1-1 1/2 hours.
  • Strain and serve.
  • Adjust to taste with lemon wedge, honey and/or cinnamon.


I usually make a big batch and refrigerate any leftovers.
The longer the tea simmers, the sweeter the taste.
