I tried this recipe; however, it tasted bitter. Is it supposed to taste bitter? If not, what do you think could have caused that?

Hi,
If you have omitted the part "Strain into the bowl pushing gently with the back of the spoon to remove all the liquid" , then it may be bitter. You need to crush the orange to remove all the juice inside.

Thanks for the reply. I retried by pressing onto the apples and oranges as you suggested; it did the trick. And what a delicious tea it was this time around.

Hi, Binnur, thank you for your wonderful recipes. I just wanted to clarify - this tea is ingested while still hot, correct?

Thanks.

Hi,
It is usually ingested hot but if you want you can also have it cold.
