On the hunt for a healthy refresher to sip on those hot days by the pool, or on-the-go? Brace yourself for an amazing iced green tea recipe that’s unique, tasty, and super easy to make!
You probably already know the fantastic health benefits of green tea, but did you know that adding lime can help you reap the benefits of those phytonutrients? Ascorbic acid (aka Vitamin C) increases the bioavailability of the antioxidants green tea, which is why we decided to make lime ice cubes. The citrus ice cubes not only enhance the flavor of this recipe, but also make you feel ultra holistic while you sip!
We always use organic green tea brands that also have matcha (pulverized green tea leaves) within the bags because they contain high doses of antioxidants.
Cheers to healthy drinking!
