Cold Steep Pitcher for Green Tea

ICED GREEN TEA

Why pay $1 or more for a plastic bottle of ready-to-drink iced tea from the store when you can make it for pennies at home? You'll get more fresh antioxidant power from your homebrew and save the environment from plastic bottles!


Ingredients:

1 tablespoon Gyokuro, Sencha, Lung Ching, Mint Green, Serene Green, Wild Strawberry Green, or Cherry Rose Green Tea

1 #2 t-sac (optional)

32 ounces filtered water

1 ounce lemon juice (optional)

1-2 tablespoons honey (optional)


Hot Steep Method:

Bring water to less than a boil, about 165-170 degrees F. (Never put boiling water on green tea.)

Place 1 tablespoon green tea into a #2 t-sac. Put the t-sac into a pitcher and add hot water.

Brew 5 minutes and remove the tea leaves. If adding honey, stir in while tea is hot.

Add lemon juice (Citric acid extends the viability of the powerful antioxidant EGCG as it passes through your digestive system.)

Store in refrigerator and drink throughout the day.

Four 6-ounce servings each day give you the antioxidant power you need for a healthy lifestyle!


Cold Steep Method:

Place 1 tablespoon green tea into a #2 t-sac. Put the t-sac into a pitcher. Or place tea directly into a filtered flask pitcher shown above. Let it float free because the filter in the lid keeps the leaves from escaping while pouring.

Fill the container with filtered tap water. Place pitcher in the refrigerator overnight.

Store in refrigerator and drink throughout the day. You don't have to remove the leaves because they will not over steep!

Four 6-ounce servings each day give you the antioxidant power you need for a healthy lifestyle!
