How to Make Ginger Green Tea

When making this green tea with ginger, it’s best to just heat the water to a simmer, but not to a boiling point, because the heat from steeping the green tea in boiling water can destroy the benefits of catechins.  

  1. Squeeze lemon and orange juice
  2. Simmer water
  3. Add tea bags and ginger
  4. Pour in the orange juice and lemon juice
  5. Serve chilled over ice
  6. Garnish with mint leaves

Green Tea Benefits

Benefits of Oranges

Orange juice is high in sugar and calories, so it’s probably best to consume it in moderation.  However, there are orange juice benefits!  Oranges are renowned for their concentration of vitamin C. Oranges also provide potassium and vitamin A. Besides being loaded with nutritional perks, this Iced Orange Ginger Tea is a delicious and fun healthy drink to sip on during warmer months, or use this homemade ginger tea in your arsenal to give you a boost during cold and flu season.
