Thirst quenching lemon/ginger iced tea!

on May 6, 2013

Hi guys!

So today I have another tea recipe! This is one we have been making for almost 8 years and it’s a hit every time we do! It’s a diabetic recipe that we found when my Mom was pregnant with my 7 year old sister. She had gestational diabetes when she was pregnant so we had to find something she could drink that wouldn’t mess up her blood sugar. So we found this! It’s a nice recipe to have on hand when you are tired of plain sweet tea!

Easy Lemon Ginger Iced tea
4 family sized tea bags
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 3/4 cup Splenda*
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 lemon sliced (for garnish)

*I only use about 1 1/2 cups of Splenda- you can adjust the amount to however sweet you like your tea.

Take one quart of water and bring to a rolling boil. Once boiling remove from heat and add the tea bags and the ginger- stir and cover immediately. Let steep for ten minutes. While tea is steeping take an empty gallon pitcher and add one quart of cold water, lemon juice and Splenda, stir to combine. After the ten minutes have passed lift the tea bags out of the pot and pour the warm tea into the pitcher. Take the tea bags and dip them in fresh cold water in the same pot and gently squeeze and then discard the bags. Pour the “tea bag rinse” into the pitcher and then fill the rest of the way with cold water. Stir well. Serve over a full glass of ice with a slice of lemon. Enjoy!

Au revoir et a bientot!
