Green Tea Spritzer


Here’s a quick way to serve you and your guests a refreshing healthful beverage without ANY guilt…unless you spill it on them (zero cals/sugar).

Serves 2 (may easily be doubled)

2 organic green tea bags

1 C boiling water

1 C natural sparkling mineral water

Stevia extract (or other natural sweetener)

1 tsp lemon juice

Celtic salt (optional)

In a large mug, pour boiling water over tea bags.  Only steep green tea  60-90 seconds, otherwise it becomes bitter.  Add sweetener to taste, lemon juice, and a few granules of salt. Satl, yes…my grandmother always said to add a tiny bit of salt to balance sweet flavors, and vice-versa.  Allow to cool.

Fill each serving glass with ice, 40z tea mixture, and top with 40z mineral water.  Garnish with a lemon wedge and mint leaf.

You can substitute green tea with any tea that you like.  The beauty of this recipe is that you can tweak it towards your palette, mood, or event.

Stay tuned for more healthful beverage ideas…and as always feel free to share your ideas here. Enjoy!

Be Well,
