Now that its finally Springtime, I've been making Fresh Iced Tea as a weekend afternoon substitute to coffee. You may have already seen my Energizing Raspberry Iced-Tea recipe, when I talked about my love for 3-day weekends, but I'm reposting it here with visuals for a quick-and-easy reference!
Here's the recipe I posted last time:
(*with 1 edit: I accidentally called out the honey as 1 tablespoon, when I met 1 teaspoon! whoops!)
3 Tea Bags of Yogi Green Tea Goji Berry
3 Tea Bags of Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger
1 Teaspoon of Honey or Agave Nectar
Place tea bags in a medium-size glass pitcher. Pour hot water into pitcher, leave about 1/4 room at top. Let brew for 5 to 10 minutes (depending how strong you like it - I prefer brewing it for a longer period of time). Add teaspoon of honey/agave nectar while still hot. Stir. Remove tea bags, allow time to cool down. Add ice cubes to top of pitcher and refrigerate. Enjoy in about an hour!
This time I didn't have the Yogi Green Tea Goji Berry, so I used 4 bags of Trader Joe's Green Tea (you can use 3-4 bags of any green tea, depending on how strong you want it to be!) I still used 3 tea bags of the Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger (You can sub any of your favorite flavored herbal teas.) The honey/agave nectar is optional depending if you like your tea sweetened (a lot of times I prefer it unsweetened).
Serve over ice in a cute glass! My Mom gave me a few of these "feet glasses" years ago, and they are still a huge-conversational item in my apartment to this day!
