Shrinking Southern Sweet Tea ‘Shine | THM: Sipper

Save for later!

I bought a box of Oolong tea several weeks ago because I wanted to make the Shrinker in the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook. Well, I still haven’t made the Shrinker, but I accidentally made an Iced Tea that shrinks and shines!

It tastes just like Southern Sweet Tea, made even better with components from both the Shrinker and the GGMS. Completely sugar-free, this refreshing Summer drink is a Sipper that can be enjoyed all day long, which means it’s perfectly fine to be totally addicted. Right? Asking for a friend.

You’ll need oolong tea, lemon green tea (you can use regular green tea, too, and increase the amount of lemon juice instead), apple cider vinegar with the mother, liquid stevia, water, and lemon juice (fresh tastes the best, but bottled works as well).

Yield: 4 servings

  1. I love this tea. This is my first time making it. I did not have lemon green tea so I used the green tea that I had. I squeezed a 1/2 of a lime in the finished brew instead of lemon and used 3T of ACV since I was not sure if my taste buds would tolerate more. It is great, next time I will add 4T of ACV.

  2. I have been making tea with honey. Could I substitute honey for the stevia?From this recipe, it’s hard to imagine that it actually turns out sweet. Eager to give it a try.

  3. Once you put the boiling water in the mason jar and put the lid on it to you immediately put it in the refrigerator? If so, won’t it break? Or do you let it cool and then put it in the refrigerator to cool rest of the way.

  4. This sounds so good, just wondering how much does this make, or, how many servings does this make? Curious to know how often I’d have to make it, I’m all about drinking goodness, but, simplicity, too . Thanks for the recipe – hopefully I can make enough for several days at a time.

  5. I want to buy the oolong tea but I use and I can’t get it to connect to that so that I get to use smile and you get credit for sharing the oolong tea with me. Do you know how to do that? Thanks.
