No Calorie Sweet Green Tea

During the summer, there’s nothing better than a cold glass of sweet tea. I enjoy the beverage but wanted a low calorie option that was also healthy for you. There are numerous antioxidants, along with Vitamins C and E found in Green Tea. (*See a report by Harvard Health Publications at the end of this post on the benefits of drinking green tea.)

This simple No Calorie Sweet Green Tea is good for you, easy to make and tastes wonderful.


Here’s all that is needed to make your very own No Calorie Sweet Green Tea:
Tea Kettle
Glass Tea Jar
10 Green Tea Bags (I use 5 Caffeinated and 5 Decaffeinated Tea Bags)
6 + 4 Cups of Water
1/2 tsp Liquid Stevia


Using a clothespin, use the tab at the end of the string to corral your tea bags.


Clip the tea bags to the side of your glass tea jar. Boil 6 cups of water in your tea kettle.


After the water in the tea kettle whistles, pour the boiling water into the glass tea jar. Aim for the tea bags as you pour.

Steep for 5 minutes.


After 5 minutes, pull the tea bags from the liquid but still inside of the tea jar. Slowly squeeze out any remaining water from the tea bags using a wooden spoon.


Add the 1/2 tsp Liquid Stevia.


Add 4 Cups of cold water to the tea jar.


Stir the tea a few times to mix the stevia in.


Let the tea cool in the fridge for several hours. Once it’s cool, pour yourself a glass and enjoy!

[*Tea’s health benefits are largely due to its high content of flavonoids — plant-derived compounds that are antioxidants. Green tea is the best food source of a group called catechins. In test tubes, catechins are more powerful than vitamins C and E in halting oxidative damage to cells and appear to have other disease-fighting properties. Studies have found an association between consuming green tea and a reduced risk for several cancers, including, skin, breast, lung, colon, esophageal, and bladder.
Additional benefits for regular consumers of green and black teas include a reduced risk for heart disease. The antioxidants in green, black, and oolong teas can help block the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, increase HDL (good) cholesterol and improve artery function. A Chinese study published recently in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed a 46%-65% reduction in hypertension risk in regular consumers of oolong or green tea, compared to non-consumers of tea.

    Hi There…again. Wanted to tell you I have made this twice now, and it’s a MUST HAVE for the summer! SO yummy…and good for us. I plan to share the simple recipe at my blog soon, but haven’t taken any photos (I don’t have a pretty pitcher like yours) and was wondering…if I give you credit (of course I would!) if I could ‘borrow’ some of yours to add to my post? I won’t be offended if you deny my request…just wanted to ask. I will definitely share the link back to this post. I’m drinking some tea right now and enjoying every sip. Thanks for sharing!
