Apple and Calamansi Green Tea


While enjoying mooncake on the Mid-Autumn Festival, don't forget to prepare a jar of tea. This is what I did while munching away my favorite mooncake  - Apple and Calamansi Green Tea. The mooncake itself is very sweet and filling, not to mention the ones with salted egg yolk! So it is good to have a refreshing tea to cleanse your taste bud.


Apple and Calamansi Green Tea
Ingredients:

2 tea bag if organis green tea bag (2g each)
4 calamansi, halved

2. Infuse the tea bags into the water. Remove the tea bags after 2 minutes.

My Little Space said...

And this should be perfect to ease the thirst! Btw, it's raining here and not much people celebrating the festival this year. Probably because of the economy down run. So quiet unlike the past years. Oh, missed those happy days! Thanks & have a nice day.

MaryMoh, lime suppose to be ok, but it will have the bitter taste, right?

StrawberrY Gal, thanks for dropping by and feel free to give it a try.

xin, this is more refreshing compared to Chinese tea.

I love the flavor of calamansi. I can never resist anything with it when I spy it on a menu. Hmm, might have to try growing my own tree at this rate. ;)
