Southern Sweet Tea with a Healthy Twist

July 26, 2015

Green tea lovers, try this nutritious and delicious spin on Southern Sweet Tea.  Sweet tea lovers, if you are trying to eat healthier, but don’t want to give up your sweet tea, then this is the recipe to try.  We are not green tea drinkers so this drink had to grow on us.  By the time we got to the end of the glass, we really enjoyed the taste of it.  Next, we are going to try to make it with just regular tea bags. This recipe is brought to you by Kevin’s Kickstarter Backers and is located on Southern Living’s website.

7 green tea bags or regular tea bags, depending on your preference.

1/2 c. honey

4 cups of water

4 cups of water

1 orange, sliced into wedges

1 lime, sliced into wedges

Bring 4 cups of water to boil in a saucepan; add tea bags.  Boil 1 minutes and steep for 10 minutes. Remove and discard tea bags. Stir in honey until thoroughly dissolved.  Pour into pitcher.  Add remaining 2 cups of water. Finally add sliced orange and lime.
