Refreshing Summertime Citrus Green Tea Recipe

This recipe is so perfect for a quick and easy cold beverage.

I like my tea subtly sweet so I only use 1/3 c. honey but feel free to adjust the amount of honey based on taste. Just make sure to stir it in while the tea is still warm or it will be hard for the honey to mix in.

Items Needed:

  1. Place the green tea leaves into bottom of pitcher. Slowly pour boiling water over tea leaves. Cover and let steep for 4-5 minutes. Do not over-steep or it will become bitter.

  2. Strain tea using a fine strainer or use a pitcher with a built-in tea strainer.

  3. Add honey and lemon juice and stir until honey is mixed in.

  4. Add the lemons, oranges and ice. Stir. If needed, you can add more ice, or place into fridge to cool completely.
