A quick, refreshing, frugal alternative to store-bought drinks.
  • 1 litre (or quart) of good tap or filtered water
  • 1 mint tea bag (I use Celestial Seasonings)
  • 6 saccharin tablets (I use Hermesetas)
  1. Add tea bag and saccharin tablets to a one litre (or quart) glass jar.
  2. Pour cold water into the jar.
  3. Wait a few minutes for the saccharin tablets to dissolve, then stir to distribute.
  4. It is ready to drink in about 10 minutes.
  5. Remove the tea bag after one day. Keeps for 2-3 days refrigerated
1. substitute 2 tbsp. honey for the saccharin; mix with hot water first to dissolve before adding to the glass jar, then top up the jar with tap water; 2. add the juice of half a lemon for extra zing and vitamin C (my favourite); 3. add ⅛ tsp of sea salt to replace your electrolytes
