This easy refresher hits the spot. From the moment you cut into the lime and pinch off the leaves of mint their refreshing and invigorating scent instantly revitalizes our mind. On top of whisking us away on a little mental vacation the ingredients in this Minty Lime Iced Green “Flat Belly” Tea have some great health benefits, making us feel lighter and bloat-free to boo.
- 1 bag green tea
- 8 ounces of water
- 1/2 small lime, juiced
- 2-3 mint leaves
- Ice, to chill
- Prepare green tea according to package directions. (We heated water, just until it bubbled, not a rolling boil., Then we poured it over the green tea bag, let steep for 5 minutes and then removed the tea bag. For stronger tea you can steep longer).
- While tea is steeping, juice 1/2 of a small lime in a small dish.
- Add the mint leaves into the lime juice and muddle (press the leaves into the dish to release their healthful oils) slightly to release their oils.
- Once tea has cooled slightly, pour tea over ice, add in lime/mint juice. You can include the leaves or leave them out, either way you will get their minty effect.
