A New Twist on Iced Green Tea
My iced green tea lemonade half-and-half has evolved over the years, and it is not truly half and half. In fact, it is more like 3/4 iced green tea and 1/4 lemonade. Here is how you can prepare it: I make my half-and-half with two ingredients. I use Yamamotoyama Sencha Green Tea bags to brew the green tea and Crystal Light Pure Lemonade mix for the lemonade portion of my half-and-half.
I use Crystal Light Pure Lemonade because it is made with sugar and Truvia and only has 15 calories per packet. Because I use two packets, there are only 30 calories in my three quarts of iced green tea lemonade half-and-half. Now you have a great iced green tea lemonade half-and-half!
I use Yamamotoyama Green Tea bags because they are individually foil-wrapped and have a strong but not overpowering green tea flavor. The resulting iced green tea lemonade half-and-half has a hint of vegetative green tea flavor, a subtle lemon flavor, and just the right amount of sweetness. It is light and refreshing, and after years of experimenting, is my favorite iced green tea half-and-half.
