The wholesome nutrients in apples include beta-carotene, vitamins C and B, calcium, phosphorus, boron, polyphenols, and pectin (Mars, 2004). Because apples tend to be cooling, you can add warming spices, such as cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum), ginger (Zingiber officinale), and cloves (Syzygium aromaticum) to counter the cooling property (McIntyre, 2002). Apple cinnamon tea makes for a nutritious, flavorful fall beverage.
