How to Make Refreshing Citrus Mint Green Tea
- 1Boil about half a gallon of water and add green tea to steep for about 2 to 3 hours
- 2While tea is brewing, clean mint sprigs, oranges and lemons (do not peel the fruit.)
- 3Slice orange and lemon. Kids love the "pinwheel" look of the "garnish" fruit.
- 4After the tea has brewed and cooled down, discard the teabags and in a 1 gallon pitcher, pour the tea and fill the remaining space in the pitcher with water up to about an inch from the rim.
- 5Add 1/2 to 1 cup of sugar or sweetener to taste
- 6Add fruit and mint, mix and refrigerate. The citrus essence from the skins will seep into the tea, giving it a lovely citrus taste. The fruit and mint also gives the tea a lovely garnished look.
- 7Serve over ice and enjoy!
