I don’t know about you, but when the all-singing, all-dancing, all-gorgeous Hugh Jackman is waving a bottle of Lipton ice tea around on my TV, I am certainly tempted to get me some of that. The tea I mean. Totally the tea. Anyway, have you ever looked at how much sugar is in that bad boy? Hugh, you should be ashamed of yourself. People step away from the pre-bottled rubbish and make your own. It is simple, tastes way better and will save you $$, diabetes and a fat ar$e. You can use any herbal tea you like or mix a few together. I have added lemon myrtle tea to my green before & hibiscus is delicious too. Some frozen berries make a great addition too. Now stop daydreaming about Mr Jackman and go forth & brew.
8-10 green tea bags
2 litres boiling water
1 lemon/lime or orange, sliced
Handful fresh mint (optional)
You will need a big jug that is not going to shatter when you pour hot water in. Add the boiled water and the tea bags to the jug and allow to steep for about 5-10 mins depending on how strong you like it. Remove tea bags and add whatever citrus fruit you have chopped. You can just add the juice if you prefer. Allow to cool, add mint then pop it in the fridge to chill.
