This iced mint green tea has such crisp, refreshing flavours that it feels like it's actively good for you. I'm not a big fan of freshly brewed green tea but it's much more palatable when it's straight from the fridge. You could experiment with different flavours - I've got my eye on a green tea with ginger for my next batch.
Iced Mint Green Tea (makes 4)
Recipe adapted from Eating Well
You will need:
- 3 green tea bags
- 1l water
- 2 tbsp honey
- Handful of mint leaves
- 4 stalks of lemongrass
- Brew the green tea and stir in the honey. Add the mint leaves and refrigerate.
- When it's nicely chilled, pour into tall glasses and add a stalk of lemongrass as garnish and for some extra zing. And a prop to fiddle with if you're feeling awkward/bored/counting the hours til you can fall off the wagon.
