How To Make Iced Green Tea

On a hot summer’s day, there is nothing I like more than to completely relax with a cool refreshing drink. Knowing how to make iced green tea with tea bags is going to be a lifesaver for you this summer!

Iced green tea is an excellent choice and also something that I have become rather addicted to lately!

But it’s not just any iced green tea recipe…..oh no!  This one is infused with delicious strawberries and a hint of mint.

Oh, did I mention that it’s totally delicious and incredibly refreshing?

Summer has a way of making people smile, and it’s hardly surprising when you can feel that warm sunshine beating down on you. Somehow everything seems to look happier and it’s definitely a time to be reaching for those summer fruits.

I don’t know about you, but there is something about sliced strawberries that just makes me smile.  I don’t know if it’s the vibrancy in the colour, or just the fact that they taste so damn good, but I certainly gobble as many as I can over the summer period.

Strawberries and Mint

My husband and I run a coffee and tea business, so we always have an endless supply of green tea in our house.  However it’s always nice to change things up a bit and be a bit adventurous.

Green Tea

Summer also has a way of making you a bit extra health conscious.

We LOVE this particular brand of green tea because it’s infused with an ancient herb that has been used in Chinese medicine for over 2000 years, Ganoderma Lucidum.

What’s so special about this herb I hear you ask?  Well it is known to have amazing healing properties and traditionally it was reserved for royalty only, but in recent times Ganoderma has been more widely available and is used now throughout alternative medicines.

And bonus…it has now been placed in tea and coffee which means we can consume our favorite beverages and get healthy at the same time.  The Ganoderma is 100% fully certified organic, can’t be seen, tasted or smelt which makes it even more awesome.

Chilled Iced Green Tea

Speaking of summer being a time for all things fruity, bright and cheery, our recent Summer party printables would be a perfect fit when hosting a backyard gathering.

Oh and did I mention that they are FREE to download!  Check them out if you havn’t already done so….you will love them!

Strawberry infused Green tea

So how did I actually make this iced green tea?  Well pretty simple really.

I literally used 2 tea bags for 500ml of hot water, then left to cool in the fridge.  In the meantime, I chopped some strawberries and mint and put aside until the tea had completely cooled.

Add ice, strawberries and mint and it’s ready to serve.  Of course the longer you leave the mint the stronger the infusion becomes, so add according to taste.

Summer for me here in Australia is around Christmas time, and I made a HUGE batch on Christmas eve so that it was ready for Christmas day.

As my daughter was opening her presents from Santa, hubby and I sat down to an awesome refreshing iced green tea which had been infusing with the mint all night long.

I can tell you…we may have woken up a bit weary, but it soon perked us up.  It was so incredibly refreshing and it was an awesome way to start the day.
