When you make it, be prepared to fight for what's left in the pitcher. It's that tasty.
Refreshing Iced Green Tea Recipe
*8 Green Tea Bags
1/4 Cup Thinly sliced fresh ginger (You can leave the skin on.)
20 Mint leaves, bruised or torn
8 Cups boiling water
- Combine tea bags, mint, and ginger in a non-reactive pot (ceramic or glass would be great).
- Pour boiling water over herbs and tea. Let steep for ten minutes. Strain.
- Allow the liquid to cool to room temperature.
- Pour over crushed ice.
- Serve with a slice of lemon.
*If you are using a quality loose green tea, start with three tablespoons. Save the grounds and reuse them to make two batches of iced green tea in a day. You can employ an infuser, add the tea to simple drawstring muslin bag, or make a pouch with string and a length of muslin or cheesecloth.
