Mom's Green Iced Tea

For a cool, refreshing, different iced tea try this:


Place 5 Celestial Seasonings (Honey Lemon Ginseng) Green Tea bags in a 1 gallon/ 4L icecream pail or jar.

Pour 4 cups boiling water over bags and let steep... til you remember you're letting them steep. (at least 10 minutes, as long as an hour or so)

Fill container with cold water.

Remove tea bags and add 1/2 cup Splenda artificial sweetener, stirring to dissolve.

Pour over ice (if desired) to serve. 


  1. I'm definitely going to try that! We always make homemade iced tea...I've been just using tap water as hot as I can make it over regular tea bags...but your idea of using a little boiling, then steep then add cold sounds like a better way to go for me. We've been using stevia in our iced tea to sweeten it because I didn't know how much splenda to use...so thanks! I'm going to try it your way:)

  2. I've been looking for a good green iced tea recipe since last spring...Thanks Lauralea!

  3. Yum... made this this weekend. Big hit! Thank you :)
