Easy Breezy Iced Green Tea for Summer

posted by Cassie Piper Social Media Coordinator for The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
Green tea may be my favorite type and making Summer Iced Tea out of it was easy breezy! Michelle demonstrates that with a few fresh cut strawberries and a splash of sparkling mineral water, you can really transform your iced tea into a tasty and truly beautiful summer beverage.

Also, side note - Michelle wanted me to mention that when brewing green tea, the optimal temperature is actually lower than boiling and should be closer to 185 degrees.

Something I also wanted to mention is that these recipes are great for full pitchers of iced tea. Michelle follows the recipe for a single serving, but all you need to do is triple the fresh ingredients and allow them time to infuse within the pitcher. You can pour each glass and top them off with the sparkling mineral water to keep the bubbles fresh.
