Glad I chose to make this recipe...DH was just the other day complaining about the "same old boring green tea" he always drinks...so I surprised him with this slightly different tart and tangy version. I made as written except I did not add any honey or sugar - we drink unsweet tea, which is very unusual for Southerners...LOL. We really enjoyed the citrus twist that this tea has and I will definitely make it again - DH really liked it. It's excellent when really iced up. Made for "Relax, chat, and sip some iced tea!!" tag in the Diabetic Forum.
