Catechin-Rich Ice Tea

2 servings


2 cups water
2 1/2 tsp loose green tea leaves
(loose leaves release more catechins than tea bags)
3 Tbsp freshly pressed organic lemon juice


Boil the water. Place green tea leaves in tea pot and pour boiling water into the pot. Let steep five minutes.
Strain the tea and add lemon juice (lemon juice is rich in vitamin C which helps make the catechins contained in green tea more available to the body).
Refrigerate until completely chilled before serving.
Serve with eco-friendly straws made of tough borosilicate glass, stainless steel, or bamboo.
