Lyons Tea has offered this great recipe for making Tea Smoothies. The original recipe called for green tea (Lyons Green Tea is not yet available in the United States). So, we changed it to black tea and the smoothies tasted great. Make sure to use Lyons Tea with this recipe (we are not sure it will work with any other tea).
