How To Bring This Drink Together!

It needs to be noted that you do not want to boil you tea water, you need to bring just to a simmer. If you boil your water the high heat will destroy all the catechin benefits. What are catechins? Catechins are antioxidants that help to protect cells from harm . These compounds may inhibit the production of free radicals, which in turn protects cells and molecules against deterioration. Aging and several illnesses are linked to these free radicals. 

  1. Using a Citrus juicer handheld - Juice your lemon and oranges
  2. Simmer water (Remember not to boil)
  3. Add your green tea bags and peeled ginger
  4. Add your freshly squeezed orange juice and lemon juice
  5. Place in fringe to chill or pour over ice.
  6. Add some mint leaves for garnish (optional)
