If you’ve grown fond of Starbucks’ iced green tea and are looking to save yourself some money by cutting down on your Starbucks visit, continue reading to find out how to make your own inexpensive iced green tea.
Instructions: How to make Starbucks iced green tea
– A 1-gallon pitcher
– 8 Tazo green tea bags
– 14 cups of water
-1 cup of sugar or 1 cup or 1 cup of organic honey
1. Boil 8 Tazo green tea bags in water, in a large saucepan
Boil 4 cups of water in a large saucepan with your 8 Tazo green tea bags for two minutes. As Starbuck uses Tazo branded green tea, to create their iced green tea. So if you want your homemade iced green tea to taste just like Starbucks’ iced green tea it’s well worth trying to get your hands on some Tazo branded green tea bags.
However, if you are unable to find Tazo green tea bags, you can still create a refreshing, mouth-watering iced green tea, using any brand of green tea that you can find at your local grocery store.
2. Remove your saucepan from its element
Turn your element off and remove your saucepan from its element and place it on a cold element. Let your tea bags seep into your water for 15 minutes.
3. Place your cup of sugar or organic honey into your pitcher
Next up, place your cup of sugar or a cup of organic honey into your 1-gallon pitcher. While your tea bags continue to seep into the water in your saucepan.
4. Remove your tea bags from your water
Remove your tea bags from your water using a pair of tongs or a spoon and throw your used tea bags away.
5. Pour your tea infused water into your pitcher
Now pour your tea infused water into your pitcher, which already contains your sugar or honey. In order to mix your ingredients use a wooden or plastic spoon with a long handle in order to stir around the ingredients of your kitchen. As ideally, you’ll want your sugar or honey to completely dissolve into your liquid.
6. Refrigerate your green tea for several hours
It’s also well worth letting your green tea sit in your fridge for a couple of hours so that your green tea will turn into iced green tea.
7. Serve your iced green tea with ice
When it comes time to serve your iced green tea, pour your iced green tea on top of crushed ice or ice cubes, in order to ensure that your iced green tea is suitably chilled. If you want to add a bit of extra flavor to your iced green tea, simply place a slice of lemon in your Starbuck’s inspired iced green tea. As lemon compliments the flavor of green tea.
