Iced Green Tea with Lemon

This is a refreshing drink after a more than 30 minutes of walking.  I usually take my liquids when I get home after my every workout and I make sure that I drink it at least 30 minutes before my solid food intake.


Green tea – 1 tea bag

Hot boiling water – 1 small cup (150 ml)

Lemon juice, freshly squeezed –  1 whole  fruit

Honey – 1 tsp

Cold water – to fill a tall glass

Ice cubes


1)     Steep green tea bag into the hot water for 5 minutes, then remove the teabag.  Let it cool first.

2)     Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the ice cubes, then stir.

3)     Serve with or without the icecubes

Sometimes I add lemon zest which I get from the lemon peel of the fruit I use, for a stronger lemon flavor
