Iced mango green tea
6 cups of water
4 TBSP Mango Green Tea
2 cups mango nectar
Fresh mint leaves for garnish
1. Heat two cups of water to 175°F. (Steam should be slow and lazy. Do not allow water to boil. Steep tea in the water (alone, in a tea bag, or in a tea ball or other infuser) for 2 minutes 30 seconds. Remove tea from water (strain if necessary)
2. Place the remaining water and mango nectar in a 1/2 gallon pitcher. Add the tea concentrate from step one and stir.
3. Serve over ice. Garnish with mint and mango slices as desired. Okay ... stick an umbrella in it if you wish!
(if sweeter tea is desired, heat 3 cups of water instead of 2 and dissolve 1/2-1 cup of sugar in 1 cup of the hot water between steps one and two.)
