Iced tea recipes are becoming so trendy! To celebrate National Tea Day (April 21st), I'm sharing a video with a few fun tea recipes. Plus tea has health benefits.
Tea is awesome for so many reasons. In its purest form, it's calorie free and still loaded with taste. That's why we write about tea all the time, like how to host a proper tea party. There are so many brands to try and enjoy. From old-school English Breakfast to fruity teas to our all-time favorite green tea, there's a flavor to suit every taste (yes, even coffee lovers can find a tea to sip). To help you think out of the box the next time you are ready to enjoy some tea, here's a fresh recipe.
Lemon & Honey Green Iced Tea
- 4-5 tea bags of your favorite green tea (depends on how strong you like your tea). My favorite brand is Pique Tea which comes in easy to dissolve crystals.
- 1 lemon sliced
- 1 cup fresh mint leaves
- 1 tablespoon honey ice for chilling and serving
Directions Boil water. Pour boiling water into pitcher with honey. Add tea bags to water and steep in a container that can stand high heat and chilling. Add sliced lemons. The rounds will pop up to the top. It's quite pretty--you might even want to take a photo Once the tea has cooled a bit, add mint leaves. Bring to to room temp or cooler and add mint leaves. Serve over ice. Enjoy!
