It is almost the end of summer but its not too late for iced tea! I’m loving iced tea made from green tea because it naturally contains flavonoids, a group of compounds found in many plants like tea, a variety of fruits and vegetables, cocoa and wine. The flavonoids in green tea are called catechins, which give green tea its vibrant green color. Lipton® Pure Green Tea has a light and smooth taste perfect for combining with fresh fruit to add a little bit of sweetness to the naturally refresh
ing beverage. In this recipe, tropical fruits like mango offer complex flavors and natural sweetness to complement green iced tea. Fresh ginger adds a spicy kick for optimal flavor. Add a touch of honey if needed for more pronounced sweet taste if you’d like.
