Tips For Making This Love Your Liver Iced Tea
There are a couple of tips you should keep in mind that will help you out a bit when assembling this tea.
Batch Prepare Your Tea
This recipe takes little to no prep work or time to assemble, so it’s a great way to add some variety to your fluids for the week without slowing you down! Take some time at the beginning of the week to make a few batches, so you’re all set and ready to go for the week ahead.
Use A French Press
To make large batches of iced tea, I’ll typically put all the tea bags in a French press. It holds much more water and ensures that if any of the tea bags burst, it catches the loose leaves.
