I knew I wanted a citrus-y green tea, but the only recipes I could find were a lipton copy cat recipe and I didn't want to copy cat, I just wanted something I could see myself drinking. Green tea is another one of those things I want to like it so bad, but I just can't force myself to drink a glass of it. So after many attempts I came up with Lemon Honey Green Tea.
Okay just so I don't get y'all confused this recipe is going to be for one glass. But in the beginning I brewed a few glasses worth of tea, because I was a mad scientist in the kitchen having to try out different green tea concoctions.
You will need:
Lemon (or lemon juice)
First bring a cup of water to a boil, then remove from heat and seep one tea bag in the water for 3 to 5 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea. Remember I was making multiple cups that's why I have 4 tea bags. Also please don't hate on my super old pot. I bet y'all can guess what I'm asking for Christmas.
Pour your tea in a glass and add 1 or 2 tablespoons of sugar, depending on how sweet you want your tea to be. Keep in mind you're still going to be adding honey, so if you don't want the tea very sweet you can just skip this step.
Next add 2 or 3 teaspoons of lemon juice, fresh squeezed or from a bottle.
Then add 1 or 2 tablespoons of honey. I added 2.
Stir it all up and serve over ice, chilled, or warm. I think it would probably do wonders served warm to a sore throat.
