Lemon Iced Green Tea

You’ll Need:

· 2 cups of water
· 1 Tablespoon honey
· 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
· 6 green tea bags
· 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Directions:

Add water and lemon peel to medium saucepan and bring to boil over medium heat.

Reduce heat to where it sustains a gentle boil and cook for about 7 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in honey and add the green tea bags.

Steep this tea mixture for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring or dunking the bags often.

Remove tea bags and stir lemon juice into the tea liquid.

Cover and refrigerator for up to 1 to 2 weeks.

To make a cup of iced tea, pour 1/4 cup of the concentrated tea mixture into a tall glass and stir in 3/4 cup of seltzer water or regular water.

Add ice cubes and enjoy!
