Simple Iced Tea

I know this is such a simple recipe, but I’ve cut down on drinking pop for a while now, and wanted to share how excited I am about iced tea!  I’m a tea lover, but I don’t like sweetened iced tea.

It started when H and I went on our first cruise last year. Oasis of the Seas served unsweetened iced tea in all their cafes and restaurants, and I couldn’t believe how addicted I became to the taste.  H “liked it not.”

You can make this with regular black or green tea bags.  Since I’m drinking it during the day and evening, I use decaf so I’m not up all night long!

Iced Tea

Makes about 4 – 6 cups


  • 4 good quality decaffeinated green tea bags
  • 2 cup glass/heat-proof measuring cup
  1. Add tea bags to measuring cup
  2. Add boiling hot water to measure 2 cups
  3. Let steep for 30 – 40 minutes, remove tea bags and discard
  4. Pour tea into a jug
  5. Add 2-4 cups cold filtered water (depending on your taste)
  6. Enjoy with ice and sliced lemons

      Green tea is so refreshing (hot or cold). My ND recommends sencha/matcha green tea from Japan. I was lucky to find it at Costco! Hope you’re having a wonderful summer so far; thank you for visiting!


It makes me smile when I receive a new comment. I look forward to hearing from you!
