Raspberry Green Tea Lemonade

Tea experts will tell you that green teas are the healthiest beverage on the planet. Loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. Attributes include improved brain function, fat loss, making your skin healthier, and lowering your risk for cancers.

I love drinking teas, pretty much all types of teas, and I try to drink it regularly. I think drinking tea calms me, and who couldn’t use a little calming now and then, but that’s beside my point here. At the top of my list of favorite teas to drink are green teas. You will read just about everywhere that green tea is so good for you that it’s even got researchers raving about its benefits.

The reason for this is the catechin content in the tea. What are catechins? Catechins are water-soluble polyphenols extracted from the leaves, into the water, which is then consumed. In a word, they are a specific kind of antioxidant called flavonoids that protect and may even prevent cell damage. Green tea is not processed as much as other teas before it’s poured in your cup, so therefore it’s rich in catechins.

Of course, no one food, or drink, in this case, can protect you from disease. Your total health is wrapped up in your lifestyle, and your genes have a lot to do with it too. Even if you were to drink green tea from sun up to sun down every day, you would still need to take care of yourself in other ways, like being active, eating a healthy diet, and not smoking.

SIP ON THIS...

  • Improved blood flow and boosting heart health
  • Lowering cholesterol
  • Fighting depression
  • Improving brain function and health as you age
  • Burning fat and improving physical performance resulting in weight loss
  • Lowering the risk of some types of cancer

Making Raspberry Green Tea Lemonade
The basic recipe for tea is also a favorite when made to drink hot. You'll want to adjust the sweetener and lemon to taste when enjoying just a cup at a time!

So, how much should you drink? The jury is still out on determining just how many cups are necessary to achieve maximum health benefits.

For me, I figure a cup now and then can’t do any harm – especially when it tastes this good made into Raspberry Green Tea Lemonade.

  • To serve, use equal amounts of tea and cold water. Pour over ice. Enjoy!

Footnotes

*Although you certainly could blend the loose-leaf tea ingredients yourself, and heaven knows there are many online recipes to guide you in making one, for convenience sake, I turn to my favorite online loose leaf tea supplier Adagio Teas or I'll visit my communities local tea house to purchase Raspberry Green Tea blend.
I’ve also made this tea and lemon blend using other flavors of loose-leaf teas. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your favorite flavor blends.
I prefer to use glass pitchers for serving beverages, especially when I know that I will be adding hot liquids in the prep. In this recipe, a glass pitcher works well for adding the honey to the hot tea to dissolve it before adding in the lemon and cold water.
