Well for starters the star ingredients in this punch recipe are usually seen together in a pot hot beverage during your regular tea time and they are also not regularly seen together at its fresh state.  But what I can assure you off is that the sweetness crisp flavors of the ingredients will you and your guest the zing that you are looking for a drink. The two main ingredients of this punch recipe that I am talking about are apples and chai tea.

I have the puzzled expression when I first encountered this punch for myself. So without further ado here is the punch recipe:
