Green tea has a delicate flavor that’s naturally slightly sweet and is best enhanced with ice and a little honey or agave nectar rather than sugar. While you’re hydrating anyway, why not make infuse your water with antioxidants? 

For extra flavor, we like green teas infused with natural berry extracts. Food Republic co-founder Marcus Samuelsson has a new line of artisanal teas out right now — the Swedish-influenced lingonberry sencha green tea from his Ambessa brand is great for this recipe, which we’ve been drinking all summer long. 

Where are the berries, you ask? Why, they’re right in the tea. Read on for our super-simple technique.
