I don't know about you, but the green tea I usually make just does not satisfy my thirst.  It feels like gulping down a healthy drink...which I'm rather unwilling to make at home in large quanties for my own benefit.  However, recently while going through the drive through of one of those well known chains, I ordered a drink I felt I paid to much for...so here is to making large batches of goodness that will benefit you and your wallet. 

There are many green tea variations: regular green tea, green tea citrus, pomegranate green tea, jasmine green tea, mango green tea, etc.  ** 

You will need:
1 gallon glass jug you can get one by purchasing organic apple juice and reusing the jug
1 kitchen funnel

Makes: 1 Gallon 
Ingredients: (Light version)
  • 6 bags of pomegranate Green Tea or your favorite green tea HERE**
  • 1/2 cup of Stevia approx 35 calories 
  • 1 cup or sugar 15 calories per tsp (720 in gallon sized jug)
  • 2/3 cup of freshly hand squeezed lime juice
  • 16 cups of water
Total calories per gallon (755 + 20 for lime juice...)  775 calories or 50 per cup

Higher concentration recipe:  This will taste better frozen and can be diluted using water
  1. Add 1/2 cup of lime juice (+30 Calories)
  2. Add 3 more bags of tea
  3. Add 3/4 cups of sugar (+ 480 Calories)
Stevia optional; Replace with regular sugar if desired (+360 Calories)
Total 1285 calories per gallon or 80 per cup, no Stevia (1610 per gallon or 100 per cup)
