This refreshing iced tea has very little sugar, making it a much healthier alternative to store-bought versions.. For variety, use different types of green teas, including tea leaves blended with dried fruit or flowers.
6 green tea bags
6 cups boiling water
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons honey
fresh mint leaves, as garnish
Pour boiling water over tea bags in a large pitcher. Steep for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on desired strength.
Remove tea bags. Stir in lemon juice and honey. Allow tea to cool before pouring into 6 large ice-filled glasses. Garnish with fresh mint leaves. Serve immediately.
