Man, I love a good iced green tea on a hot day. Hello everyone and welcome back to another post! As I think I have mentioned on the blog in the past, I hoard tea. No like really, I had a HUGE stash of tea that I have slowly developed over the years. I can’t stand the idea of just throwing out a perfectly fine item and allowing it to sit in a landfill for years, so I have slowly been using up my tea in the form of making different types of iced tea. I know I know; this is a pasty blog, but I love incorporating some drink recipes as well because where I come from, I need a glass of something every time I sit down to eat anything. Maybe that is weird, but I come from a desert and if you don’t drink, you die. LOL. Just kidding, kind of.
Anyway, I really enjoyed this ginger green iced tea and I found it super refreshing. I also used a ginger tea that aids in digestion so if you just ate a huge piece of cake, wash it down with this iced tea and you are good to go. It is a super simple recipe that requires two types of tea, a glass pitcher that I absolutely love and a squeeze of lemon if that is something that you are into. I personally think sweet tea is nasty, but if you like to sweeten your tea feel free to do so! I hope to get a recipe for sun tea up on the blog in the future as well so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, grab your electric kettle and let’s get right into this super simple iced tea recipe! I hope you enjoy. ♥️
Oh, and how much do you love how these pictures turned out??? They are probably some of my all-time favorite pictures that I have shot for the blog. I was really trying to make it look like the middle of summer and I think I pulled it off. What do you think?? Since it was dead set in the middle of winter when these were shot I feel like that is a pretty big feat.
I simply took the tea bags and soaked them in the water for about 20 minutes to really make a rich tea. Do you like my rainbow straw that is featured below??? Grab yours right here! I love reusable straws and when your straw is literally a rainbow, how can you resist? It is so pretty! I also love to use large glass jars as well. I grabbed this one on a hike in Kauai and we loved it so much that we brought it all the way back home to the states. Grab your own glass jars right here and be a greener chef with me!
