Iced Honey Green Tea

When it comes to most foods, I tend to get bored pretty quickly.  Meaning, I don’t want the same sandwich or salad five days in a row.  However, give me a tasty beverage and I can drink the same one everyday for weeks at a time and never want anything else.  I guess I’m kinda funny like that.

This single serving of iced honey green tea has been my go-to drink all summer and now it’s time to share it with the world!

I love hot green tea during the cold months.  Lol… I have to laugh every time I say “hot green tea.”  A few years ago my sisters and I were at a low quality chain restaurant for breakfast.  (I don’t remember the name of it, but it’s not important to the story).  I asked the waitress if they had hot green tea.  She looked at me like I had three heads and answered “No.”  My sisters thought that I was ridiculous for even thinking that a place like that would offer such a “fancy” tea.  It never occurred to me that they might not have it.  Ever since then they’ll occasionally bring it up, trying to mimic my voice asking for “hot green tea.”

Anyway… after learning how to brew iced tea last year, I used that same concept with green tea.  For some reason, the iced version can be a bit bitter so sometimes I add a little honey to the party to smooth it out.  It really did take the edge off the bitterness.

I opted to make this into a single serving because my hubby hates green tea.  Well, he likes the flavor, but let’s just say the tea isn’t especially nice to his insides.
