Rooibos Vanilla Earl Grey Apple Compote Recipe

Rooibos Vanilla Earl Grey makes a wonderfully earthy, aromatic infusion that perfectly compliments the apples. Add a little ginger and lemon to add some contrast to the sweetness and you will have a simple, wholesome accompaniment to any yogurt or porridge or even enjoy it on its own. It is also a great way to use up any apples that may be past their best.


  • 3 apples (it works best with sweeter, red apples but if you prefer your compote a little tart go for a green cooking apple or a granny smith)
  • 100ml boiling water
  • 1 AVANTCHA Rooibos Vanilla Earl Grey tea bag or 5g loose Rooibos Vanilla Earl Grey
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • 2cm of ginger – grated
  • 1tbsp brown sugar (+ more to taste)


  • If using loose tea, brew this in a teapot with 100ml boiling water for 8 mins. After 8 mins strain the leaves from the infusion and throw away.
  • While the tea is brewing, peel and core the apples and then chop into 1cm chunks
  • Add the chopped apple, 1 tbsp brown sugar and grated ginger to a small saucepan. If using a teabag add this now.
  • If using loose tea, add the brewed infusion (minus the leaves) to the saucepan.
  • Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat and leave on a gentle simmer, with the lid on, for 15-20 mins or until the apple is soft. You will need to stir occasionally to stop the apple from sticking.
  • Once the apple is soft, remove the teabag and add a squeeze of lemon. Also check you are happy with the sweetness and add more brown sugar if necessary
  • Its ready to eat! Or you can leave it to cool down and then store in the fridge or freezer – it keeps very well when frozen.
