I’m trying to cut down a bit on caffeine – I’m very fond of a good coffee and a can of diet coke. I’ve recently moved across town into a new office building but still part of the same company. This office has a coffee machine and soya milk – this has not been good for cutting on caffeine. I’m like a child because it is there I have to have it.
As it is freezing outside I’ve had a go at making a caffeine free hot drink as an alternative to one of my coffees. The name of this caused a bit of debate in my family, my dad was not up for calling it tea. Tea in his mind is black tea with a splash of milk – he probably is right. My brother-n-law for a laugh called it an apple infusion – which I actually quite liked. I’ve used a combination of the two and called it an apple tea infusion.
You can make a litre of this and store it in the fridge. That way you can reheat it by the cupful when you need it. I think I’ll try making this with some different fruit flavours – I’ll let you know how I get on.
