Iced green tea with lemons, citrus, and fresh mint is a delicious and energising beverage for those hot summer days. Honey is used to sweeten each drink naturally.


  1. 1/4 cup lime juice, plus 3 sliced limes for decoration
  2. 1/4 cup lemon juice, plus 2 sliced lemons for garnish
  3. 5 c. water
  4. 5 tea bags of Jasmine Green Tea
  5. 1/4 cup honey, plus additional if desired
  6. There are 18 mint leaves.


  • Fill a big pitcher halfway with lime and lemon juice.
  • Put two cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. When the water temperature hits 170°F to 185°F, add 5 green tea bags to the hot water.
  • Steep for 3 minutes or as directed on the box.
  • Gently press the tea bags against the pan with a large spoon to extract more tea. Remove and discard the tea bags from the saucepan with care.
  • Whisk within honey until it has dissolved completely. Fill the pitcher halfway with the tea and honey mixture.
  • Fill the pitcher with 3 glasses of cold water. Stir until completely combined. If desired, add extra honey.
  • Serve cooled green tea with ice cubes, a few lime slices, lemon slices, and 3 fresh mint leaves in each glass.


  • Saucepan (about 2-3 quarts)
  • Thermometer with Instant Read


8 oz. serving size

Because this tea is on the sweeter side, add more honey to the taste.
