Recipe: Easiest Iced Tea Ever

Iced Green Tea

4-6 cups of water
2 bags of Bigelow Decaffeinated Organic Green Tea

Place bags of green tea in teapot or other heatproof container

Heat 6 cups of water. Immediately before it boils (or about 30 seconds after it's come to a boil and you've removed it from the heat), pour over tea bags.

Let steep for 6 minutes, 30 seconds, then remove tea bags.

Chill and serve.

Serving options:
1. Add one wedge of lemon to each glass before serving.
2. Crush several fresh mint leaves in glass, then add ice tea.
3. Use frozen strawberries, peach slices, blueberries or rasberries in place of ice cubes.

Nutritional information:
Unsweetened ice tea has no calories. But decaf green tea has antioxident properties. It may help boost metabolism, and may help prevent breast cancer and prostate cancer. It may also lower the risks associated with cardiovascular disease.
