Hubby and I try to drink green tea on a daily basis. I came up with this recipe to make it more interesting. You can use freshly squeezed orange juice instead of grapefruit juice.

Very good. Tart but good. I did double the honey because I like a sweet tea (still came out a bit tangy!). Also I put some looseleaf green tea in my tea ball along with some grated lemon zest since that's all I had and steeped that together before adding all the other ingredients. Good way to get your vitamin C that's for sure! Read More

This would probably be a lot better with any juice other than grapefruit. It tasted like medicine. Read More

A friend had given my some green tea powder a while back to try and never knew what to do with it until now. Thank goodness for this recipe two-fold. I'm suffering from spring allergies so my throat is a mess. I brewed up this tea and sat inhaling the steam and drinking it down. I feel MUCH better. This tea is so wonderful. Very flavorful and the citrus combination is in-sane. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Read More
