Refreshing Green Iced Tea

  • 1/4 peeled cucumber
  • 5 green tea bags (with mint or buy regular and get fresh mint)
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 lime (juice and zest)
  • I package basil seeds
  • 1 cup lime seltzer water
  1. Boil 6 cups of water in a large pot, add tea bags and remove from heat. Let seep for at least 10 mins
  2. Combine lime, seltzer and cucumber in a blender or food processor
  3. Add mixture to tea
  4. When the tea is warm (not hot) add basil seeds; they will change appearance and look pretty cool when they are finished
  5. Refrigerate and serve when cold
