    I have green tea bags that I’ve been making hot green tea with for quite some time. I am so happy to have found this particular idea for cold iced green tea as it will save me money and I can use what I currently have in my pantry. Thank you!

    Make only what you can drink over the next few days after you make up. You can make it in smaller batches by reducing the recipe.
