Apple-Mint Green Tea

Apple -Mint Green Tea 
Green Tea is the healthiest beverage on the planet. It is loaded with anti oxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body which include improved brain function , fat loss and other incredible health benefits. The caffeine and catechins in green tea have a temperature-raising effect that speeds up your metabolism, causing you to burn more calories in the same amount of time.

 A serving of dried mint leaves provides more fiber, vitamins and minerals than a serving of fresh mint leaves and the benefits of mint extend beyond its nutritional value. Peppermint tea, made from boiling water and dried mint leaves, delivers relief from indigestion, flatulence and cold and flu symptoms. 

Ingredients:
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 2 tsp dried Mint 
  • 2 Green tea bags
  • 1/4 Cup Apple juice
  • Slices of Apple and fresh mint springs for garnishing.


Method:
  1. In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat.

   2.  Add the dried mint to the boiling water and let the leaves boil for about a minute.


    3.  Turn off the heat, strain out the dried mint leaves and add the tea bags into the water and soak for 10 minutes.


   4.  Remove the tea bags and cool the tea to room temperature . Add the apple juice to the cooled tea.

   5.  Refrigerate until ready to serve. Pour the punch into ice filled glass , garnish with fresh mint springs and slices of Apple. Enjoy !


Notes: 
  • Can add fresh lime juice also to this punch.
  • Green tea and mint interact with certain medications and other teas, so its important to consult with your doctor before drinking green tea or taking green tea supplements.
