I love honey green tea. But what I don't love is paying $1 for a bottle of it or $4 for a gallon. Moreover, much of the store-bought green tea has more corn syrup in it than honey. Ugh. So, I decided to try making it at home. You only need three ingredients (water, green tea, honey). There are a lot of different types of green tea out there, and you will have to find one that you like. Personally, I use the Trader Joe's Green Tea. I like the flavor and it's damn cheap (48 bags of tea for $1.99).
Ingredients (makes 7 servings):
- 7 bags of green tea
- 7 cups of water
- Honey (to taste)
- Bring the water to a boil and then let it cool down for 5-7 minutes. Add the green tea and let it sit for 1-2 minutes. (Be careful - green tea can become bitter if it sits in the water too long.)
- Add honey and stir to dissolve. For an extra twist, use flavored honey. When the green tea has cooled, move it to a pitcher and place it in the fridge. Serve chilled and enjoy!
