Key Ingredients

You can find the full printable recipe, including ingredient quantities, below. But first, here are some explanations of ingredients and steps to help you make this recipe perfect every time.

  • Water — If your water has any after-taste, I recommend using filtered water.
  • Green tea — You’ll need a green tea bag. I really like the green tea at Costco or Sprouts. There are other brands that provide delicious green tea, such as Tazo and Republic of Tea.
  • Matcha — This is truly optional, but if you’d like to give an extra green tea boost, add some matcha powder. I highly recommend using ceremonial grade matcha powder as it delivers the brightest color and best flavor.
  • Strawberries — You’ll need three fresh strawberries, plus another one, if you’d like to add slices of strawberries to the glass.
  • Lime — Slices of fresh lime add a tangy zing to each glass. You can substitute a fresh lemon for a strawberry lemonade vibe.
  • Sweetener — If your strawberries are sweet, you may not need to add sweetener. But if you prefer your tea on the sweet side, stir in a teaspoon of granulated sugar. For a zero-calorie option, use stevia or monk fruit. You can also stir in your favorite syrup sweetener.
  • Mint — Add a couple of fresh mint leaves for color and flavor.

How to Make Strawberry Green Tea

  1. Heat water in a saucepan or microwave until hot but not boiling.

Frequently-Asked Questions

Is strawberry green tea caffeine-free?

Strawberry green tea does contain caffeine, although the caffeine content is generally lower than in black tea or coffee. The exact amount can vary depending on the type of green tea used. If you want a caffeine-free option, use decaffeinated green tea or herbal teas.

Can I use frozen strawberries for making strawberry green tea?

Yes, you can definitely use frozen strawberries to make strawberry green tea. Frozen strawberries can be a convenient option, especially when fresh strawberries are not in season. Thaw the frozen strawberries before adding them to the tea, or you can even blend them to create a smooth strawberry puree that can be mixed into the brewed tea for a vibrant flavor infusion.

Storage Tips

Store leftover tea in a mason jar in the fridge for up to 5 days. Not recommended for freezing.
