Iced Green Tea


  • 2 tablespoons good quality loose leaf green tea
  • 1 tablespoon (unsprayed) dried rose petals (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon whole coriander seeds (optional)
  • 4 cups filtered water, divided


  1. Place the green tea, rose petals, and coriander in a pitcher. Bring 1/2 cup / 120ml water not quite to a boil. Pour it over the tea leaves wait ten seconds, then add the remaining 3 1/2 cups water.

  2.  Refrigerate until the tea is a strength you like - typically 4 - 8 hours. Strain and serve over ice.
