Fizzy Ginger Iced Green Tea

Iced Tea is one of those classic summer drinks.  It is cool, refreshing, and good.  Today, I found a recipe for iced green tea that had a hint of ginger flavor with a little sweetness.  To add a little fizz to the tea, lemon sparkling water was poured on top of the tea.

I enjoyed this tea.  I tried it both with and without the sparkling water.  Both were equally good.
There was just the right amount of sweetness to the tea not to overshadow the refreshing zingy taste of the ginger.   Make yourself a glass and enjoy:)

In a large pot combine water, sugar, and ginger.  Bring to boiling; reduce heat.  Simmer, covered, 5 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Add tea bags; cover.  Let stand 3 minutes.  Remove and discard tea bags.  Strain ginger; discard.  Transfer tea to a 2-gallon pitcher.  Cover; cool completely.  Chill.  To serve, fill a glass with ice cubes, them fill halfway with tea.  Top with sparkling water.
