Recipe Notes

  • For a healthier and diabetic-friendly cup, simply skip adding any sweetener.
  • Make a large batch of green tea and refrigerate for a few days. Serve it chilled with a few sprigs of mint leaves or a dash of lemon juice. Do not reheat the refrigerated green tea as the flavors won’t be the same. If you love hot teas, then always brew them fresh.
