Updated: Aug 13, 2020

One of the best ways to stay healthy is to make sure you drink enough water during the day. A good way to increase the amount of water you drink is to make healthy iced tea. This gives you a little more flavor, but also keeps you hydrated.

Healthy iced tea with lemon and basil

Servings: 2-3 persons Cooking time: 2 minutes + 15 minutes + 3-4 hours in the refrigerator


1/2 lemon, in slices 6 leaves of fresh basil 2 bags of green tea 3 cups of hot water


  1. Add the lemon slices, basil leaves and green tea bags in a can or jug and pour the hot water over it. Let it stand for 15 minutes.

  • If you want the tea to be sweeter, you can also add honey. Best to add once the tea has cooled. This way the nutrients are preserved.
