Iced Green Tea-Here I am back with another cool drink. Didn’t I tell you that I have been advised by hubby to post more refreshing drink recipes this summer 😉
Now we all know the health benefits of green tea. It is a good source of antioxidants, helps in fighting Cancer, and Helps in losing weight and lowering cholesterol levels. With so many known benefits one must sometimes wonder why everyone has not switched to green tea totally.
In winter you can have tea easily but summers get too hot and unbearable. So if you want to enjoy the benefits of green tea in summers this is how you can.
I have added very little sugar as we are used to having green tea without milk and sugar. You can add more if you like or replace it with honey. Lemon adds the punch so do not skip them. Mint not only adds flavor and nutrition but also increases the cool factor and makes the drink soo inviting 🙂
2 green tea bags
4 cups Water
1 tbsp sugar
juice of 1 lemon
10-15 Mint leaves
lemon slices to garnish
