Iced green tea
As we know, green tea is even healthier for us that black tea, with its abundance of polyphenols. I have been making green tea ice tea this summer, and I find it very refreshing, and a fine alternative to iced black tea. I would say about 50% of the guests I have served it to have enjoyed it and asked for seconds. I use a large tea ball, and fill it half full with a simple loose green. I then put it in a "boiling-water-proof" glass pitcher, and poor very hot (almost boiling) water over it. I let it steep two minutes. Sometimes I add a little sugar while its warm, and sometimes I don't. I keep it in the refrig. It lasts much longer in the frig than iced black tea (which goes sour and slimy after a couple days in the frig, especially if you "sugar" it while its warm, which I do).
