Cleansing Green Tea

This cleansing green tea I make often for me and hubs. It's a ice tea and helps with the digestive system. Especially if you have acid reflux. It's not a cure, but it does help to settle the stomach and get it in working order. I try to drink one pitcher a week. It's very refreshing.

8 cups boiling water
8 green tea, tea bags
1 bunch of fresh mint
2tbs. Fresh ginger
2 cups ice
2 fresh lemons

Boil water to make tea. Pour over the tea bags making 8 cups. Let seep for 5 minutes. In a ice tea container, place 1/4 of the bunch of fresh mint. Break the mint into piece. Peel the ginger. With peeler peel pieces of ginger measure about 2tbs. Add two cups of ice. Discard the tea bags and pour the tea over the mixture of mint, ginger and ice, add the juice of the lemons. Let it set for 1hr. to cool. It's not a sweet tea and I don't recommend adding sugar, honey or sweetener to this drink. It could counter the healthy properties.
