Sparkling Green Tea Lemonade

If you think green tea is boring and tasteless, then this is something that could COMPLETELY change your mind. The sparkling fizz makes it taste fresh and feel good on your throat, while the sugar, lime, and green tea add a zingy sensation to the old taste. This is a personal family favorite, and I made it up in my own kitchen! Perfect for parties, get-togethers, and family picnics on hot summer days.

This drink was okay, but the name is very misleading. I would call it "Fizzy Iced Tea". There is no lemon in it - just a little splash of lime juice, and not enough sweet or sour to be called lemonade. The flavor is dry. I added more sugar and lime juice, and it was much improved.

I changed it up a little bit. Only half cup boiling water over 3 tea bags. Chilled that then used 1/4 cup for each of 2 servings. Instead of sugar I used 5 drops stevia and used 2 pkts True Lime per serving. Added it to a large mason jar and filled with ice and seltzer. Very refreshing. Have now made this with True Lemon and True Orange as well as the True Lime, 2 pkts each time. So Good!
