Green tea lemonade...

The lovely Susie sent me the link to the recipe for this after I mentioned that I was looking for a refreshing drink for when the weather heated up (!) and I have made it a couple of times now as it really is lovely!


Take a jug, some green tea bags (I used my favourite: Clipper green tea) and fill a jug with water.


Add teabags to the top and leave in the fridge for as long as possible (I left it overnight)

Yes it may look a bit like wee but it tastes lovely!
Remove the bags but do not squeeze the bags, otherwise it will make it bitter!


Top up with lemonade and serve over ice for a wonderfully refreshing drink that is fairly good for you, especially if you use decaffeinated tea bags!
Do you like green tea? What is your favourite summer drink?

P.S. I am off to London for the weekend so it may be a little quiet around here for a while!

That sounds amazing!! I've cut out sugar at the moment but will definitely try this when I'm allowed sugar again :D xxx

Loving the sounds of this. I love the Vanilla Read Bush tea chilled. Warning- it does need a bit of sugar when it's chilled, but lovely none the less.

Ooo, that sounds really nice. I'm not a tea drinker though. I love lemonade during the summer.

Ooooh this looks good! I'm not a big fan of tea, but I think cold with lemonade could be really tasty, and as you said good for you!

Does squeezing the tea bags really make it bitter? I had no idea! I now know where I've been going wrong...

This sounds delicious, I'm gonna have to try it out. x
