Iced & Spiced Green Tea


  • Makes two pitchers
  • Four tablespoons of your favorite kind of long leaf green tea. (I have a few, but I like the Imperial, and it’s usually very affordable.)
  • Two bags of aromatic herbal “infusion.” (Technically, anything that doesn’t have tea leaves in it is an infusion, and not a tea. All this is for is to add some yummy flavors. I am partial to the Taizo Baked Apple, but you can use anything you like. Floral and fruity blends play well with everything else here.)
  • Two 3-4″ cinnamon sticks. (Buy in bulk on the Amazons!)
  • One “thumb” (about a two inch piece) of fresh ginger, sliced thinly.
  • Another “thumb” of fresh turmeric root, also sliced thinly. (Not turmeric powder.)
  • Two level measuring teaspoons of stevia extract. (This is my taste, it may not be yours. Also, be aware that different brands of stevia sweeten differently.)
  • Timer. (Not for eating.)


  1. Place the cinnamon, ginger, turmeric root and stevia in a medium pot, and fill with water.
  2. Bring this to a boil.
  3. As soon as the water begins to boil, toss in your loose tea and herbal infusion.
  4. Set timer for five minutes.
  5. When time is up, remove from heat, and strain your tea evenly, into two pitchers.
  6. Fill the remainder of the pitchers with water, and refrigerate.
