Lemon Ice Green Tea

DISCLAIMER: This is the 1st time I'm writing about something cooked and I'm not familiar with the cooking acronyms. So please let me know if I've used the wrong description.

1 tablespoon dried green tea
A glass of water
1 teaspoon sugar or honey
Juice from 1/2 a lemon
A piece of ginger:(Make paste)
A few cubes of ice

Boil the green tea and sugar in a glass of water until the tea turns a bit greenish. Remove from flame. Add the ginger paste.
Note: If you are using honey, do not boil it. Add it later once the ice tea is cool.
Filter the ice tea and throw the leaves and crushed ginger .
Add the lemon juice and mix it well.
Cool the drink for 1/2 an hour in the freezer.
Voila! your refreshing green tea is ready to be served.
Tip: I also add coconut water to the drink. Green tea leaves can also be added to your regular tea to enhance it's taste. Use your imagination to make it your own signature green drink.
