Black & Green Tea

This is a refreshing, time-saving way of making sure that there’s always tea to drink.  I don’t like the taste of straight black tea, as it leaves a dry taste in my mouth, and green tea alone is lacking in flavor.  I use a mix of the two and find that it not only tastes great, but it’s a great thirst quencher as well!

Ingredients

For 1 gallon:

2 Family Size Green Tea Bags

Brewing a concentrate

1 Chamomile Tea Bag (optional)

1 tsp Liquid Stevia

Method

Brew tea as directed.

Pour into gallon container, and fill with water to top.

Sweeten with 1 tsp liquid stevia per gallon (or whatever suites your tastes).

To Make a Concentrate Solution…

I make up a concentrate of brewed tea and stevia so that all I need to do is dilute part of the concentrate to have a gallon of tea.  I make enough concentrate to have 3 gallons of tea.

6 Family Size Green Tea Bags

1 T Liquid Stevia
