Iced Green-Ginger-Mint Tea

'Tis the season for cold refreshing beverages and I just cannot get enough of this iced green tea recipe I invented. It's full of all kinds of healthy ingredients and couldn't be easier to make.

You'll need the following organic ingredients to make a pitcher:
  • 3-4 bags green tea
  • 2-3 lemon slices
  • 1 1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and smashed
  • 2-3 sprigs of mint
  • Dash of honey simple syrup (2-3 Tablespoons honey mixed with 2-3 Tablespoons boiling water)
Directions: Basically, add everything to your pitcher, pour in cold filtered water and leave it for a few hours--sun is wonderful, but not necessary, while it steeps. Pour over ice or refrigerate until chilled. Enjoy!
