Fruit Infused Green Tea

I've been trying to find healthier choices for getting fluids, other than soft drinks. Fruit infused water is popular, and then I thought, why not green tea? It's a very healthy beverage, and homemade is best. The bottled green teas in the grocery stores have very little real green tea in them. This way, I have a lovely flavored all-natural green tea.

3This can also be made in a large pitcher. I used frozen strawberries in the batch I just made. I cut them into halves or thirds. Other possibilities might be sliced peaches, lemons or limes, blueberries or raspberries, or melon chunks. Mint or basil leaves also make a nice addition.
