Bael fruit tea is served over ice in Thailadn. It has many reported health benefits and is easy to make. This recipe makes a concentrated tea which should be diluted to taste before use. We suggest 2 parts water to one part concentrate.
Toast the dried bael directly in a pan over moderate heat for a minute or two to release the aroma and boost flavors.
Remove the bael from the pan.
Bring the drinking water to the boil and then add in the toasted bael. Reduce the heat and simmer for 25 minutes.
Remove from the heat and remove the large pices of bael with a slotted spoon. Add in the sugar and stir to dissolve.
It is best to allow the bael to cool before pouring through a cloth filter to remove any remaining small particles. Transfer to a large covered jug and refrigerate. The drink will keep for several days refrigerated.
Add one part bael tea to two parts plain water served over ice. Adjust taste if preferred by adding more or less water to dilute.
