Spiced Green Tea Lime Cooler


Spiced Green Tea Lime Cooler

This beverage was created for the Ready Set Cook Game RCS 2018 of my favourite cooking community.
Main ingredient:
Green tea!
This recipe just popped into my mind when I read the ingredient list. Not a huge fan of cold tea beverages, but all of a sudden I knew I wanted this... And it turned out really delicious, even though the colour is a bit strange because of the evaporated cane juice!
Feel free to adjust the spices to your taste.

  • 1 cup of cold green tea (I used gunpowder)
  • Juice of 1 1/2 limes
  • 1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 1/8 (or less, to taste) teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar (evaporated cane juice, or jaggery)
  • 1 Slice of lime (garnish)

  • Brew green tea and let cool completely, if you want it really cold, let it stand in the fridge overnight or for a couple of hours.
  • Put 2 teaspoons of brown sugar into a tall glass.
  • Combine cold tea, lime juice and spices, stir well.
  • Pour over brown sugar.
  • Serve with a slice of lime.


  1. Made for the RSC game at the FF&F cooking site - Most know I've become a coffee addict since moving to Iceland, but iced sweet tea was my beverage of choice when I lived in the heat of Dallas. I doubled your recipe, made it as written & tasted it ice-cold from the fridge. It was a tiny bit tart for me, but 1 more tsp of brown sugar fixed what is a matter of pers preference. Loved the spicing! There is a residue from it, but I stirred it in w/ea lovely slurp & it disappears. Lovely beverage, Mia. Enjoyed it very much. Thx for sharing it for RSC. :-)
