Ingredients

  • 4 cups filtered water See Note 1
  • 10 green tea bags See Note 2
  • 1 cup pineapple juice See Note 3
  • ½ cup sugar (or to taste) See Note 4
  • ice, to serve

Instructions

  • In a pot/saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
  • Pour the sugar in the water, and stir until dissolved.
  • Remove from the heat and add the tea bags. Leave them to steep for about 8-10 minutes.
  • Stir in the pineapple juice.
  • Place into a pitcher, and allow to cool slightly at room temperature before refrigerating.
  • When serving, add ice and enjoy!

Notes

  1. It is essential to use filtered/un-chlorinated water - this will give you the best taste.
  2. We have used green tea bags in this recipe, but you can certainly experiment with other kinds of tea.
  3. Be sure to use fresh pineapple juice, and not concentrate. If you would like to make your own pineapple juice, use a juicer and juice half of a large pineapple. This makes about a cup of juice, maybe a touch more.
  4. To make this keto-friendly, change the sugar to a granulated sugar substitute such as Swerve.
    If you prefer a sweeter or less sweet drink, add a little less/more sugar.
  5. The serving size and nutritional information is based on an approximate one cup serve per person. This recipe makes approximately five cups of iced tea.
