Ingredients

  • 6 cups water
  • 8 2½ x 1-inch strips lemon peel (see Tips)
  • 2 inch piece peeled fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 3 green tea bags
  • Sugar substitute (see Tips) (optional)
  • Lemon slices (optional)

Preparation Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan bring the water, lemon strips, and ginger to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove lemon and ginger.
  2. Place tea bags in a teapot and immediately add simmering lemon-infused water. Cover and let steep 1 to 3 minutes. Remove tea bags, squeezing gently.
  3. Serve immediately in heatproof glass mugs or cups. If desired, sweeten to taste with sugar substitute and serve with lemon slices.
  • Test Kitchen Tip: Remove lemon peel with a vegetable peeler. If necessary, use a sharp knife to scrape off any white pith that remains on the peel, as this can cause bitterness.
  • For a sugar substitute, choose Splenda Granular.
  • For a single serving, in a small saucepan bring 1½ cups water, one 2½x1-inch lemon peel strip, and 1 thin slice fresh ginger to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 10 minutes. Remove lemon and ginger. Place 1 green tea bag in a heatproof glass mug or cup and immediately add simmering lemon-infused water. Let steep 1 to 3 minutes. Remove tea bag, squeezing gently. Serve immediately. If desired, sweeten to taste with sugar substitute and serve with a lemon slice. Makes 1⅓ cups.
