We all know OG teas are delicious enjoyed on their own. But sometimes you want to take your summer beverage to the next level. With ORGANO™ brand teas, you’re not only getting the benefits of antioxidants from the tea, but the added benefits of the Ganoderma mushroom.

As we transition into summer, a steaming cup of tea might not be as appetizing in the hot weather. Great news! ORGANO™ teas taste fantastic iced too!

Pull out these refreshing iced tea recipes at your OG Mixer or social gathering. They’re so delicious you’ll be making new friends and new customers in no time.

Bubbly Lemon Mint Green Tea

A super refreshing twist on the classic green tea. The lemon adds a citrus boost while the mint is an extra cooling flavor to this soon-to-be summer favorite. And we have to admit, the bubbles make this feel like a decadent cocktail, without the guilt of heavy calories.

Added bonus: green tea becomes EVEN HEALTHIER when you add a slice of lemon. Green tea is high in disease-fighting antioxidants, but these can be mostly broken down in digestion before your body is able to use them. Studies have shown that by adding a citrus fruit — like lemon — to the green tea, your body is better able to absorb the antioxidants. Citrus protects the antioxidants until they reach the lower intestine for absorption. That tasty lemon twist is making the green tea 5 times as healthy!

Ingredients:

2 ORGANO™ Green Tea bags

½ cup hot water

Ice (4-5 ice cubes)

2 lemon slices

3-4 mint leaves

¼ cup Sparkling water

Sweetener as desired (To keep it healthy, we recommend a natural sweetener like honey or agave.)

Directions:

  1. Place the 2 tea bags in the hot water and let steep for 10 minutes (max).
  2. After steeping, remove the bags. Add some lemon drops by squeezing one of the lemon slices on top of the tea.
  3. Place ice cubes into a glass (a pint or cocktail glass works best). Pour tea over ice. Add sparkling water.
  4. Garnish iced tea with lemon slice and mint (If you like mint, feel free to add additional leaves for extra refreshing flavor).
  5. Enjoy as is or add sweetener to taste.
