So go ahead, buy the raw materials and experiment with proportions until you get a tasty tea. And those "Natural flavors" could be essential oils. Or perhaps they're something else instead.

...it's -not- that simple.

Medicinal effects? It'll stimulate your appetite and your digestion.

As you work with apples (and other fruit) through peeling and mashing and straining, sometimes you can end up with lots of peel, raw or cooked. This dried, esp crabapple peel, might be useful.

At home you can just add apple juice to a tea.

Other natural flavors might include a touch of the spices in formulas for apple pie spice.

Henrietta's got the idea...experiment and have fun with these. I'll send more... Not everyone lives in the US.

There is one thing though, as you build from a tea base to include effective medicinal herbs the need to identify the tea as medicinal increases and a need to regulate the "dosage" increases.
