We love iced tea around here and drink it often but it’s nice to change it up a little bit once in a while. There are so many benefits to drinking green tea. According to Healthline.com, there are 10 evidence based benefits of drinking green tea. The two that caught my eye were fat burning and that it may aid in losing extra pounds. After this period of quarantine, I also gained the “quarantine 15” as they have been termed. And as it happened I also had an appointment with my Doctor for a physical and well….that didn’t go to well. I need to lose the weight.

I drink tons of water, so that’s not an issue for me, but anything that can help make the process of losing some extra lbs., well I’m all for it. This is where this iced tea recipe comes in. This Honey Orange Mint Green tea is just made of green tea, mint leaves, a touch of honey and some citrus. It keeps for up to 3 days if it lasts that long and well tastes refreshing and healthy.

How to make Honey Orange Mint Green Tea

ingredients for iced orange honey green tea

I start by boiling some water. In a large, heat proof container, I add 6-8 tea bags to about 4 cups of hot water. I steep the tea bags for a few minutes and allow it to cool down to a warm temperature. Stir in honey to taste; I use about 2 tsp of raw honey.

I add ice to a 1 quart pitcher and the mint leaves and pour the warm tea onto the leaves and ice in the pitcher. This allows the mint to release the flavor into the tea delicately. Top with additional water if needed.

Allow the tea to cool and pour into glasses and add ice if needed. Garnish with orange wedge and additional mint. If you want to store tea, remove mint leaves as they will brown as they sit in the liquid. The citrus fairs well.
