Ingredients

  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 tablespoon white tea leaves
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup guava nectar
  • ice

Instructions

  1. Steep the tea in the hot water for 10-15 minutes, then remove the tea leaves.
  2. Stir the salt and sugar into the tea until combined, then let the tea cool completely.
  3. Once the tea is cooled, stir in the lemon juice and guava nectar. Taste the drink and adjust the sugar/guava/lemon if needed.
  4. Fill a tall glass half full with ice, then pour in the guava white tea lemonade. Give it a stir before sipping!

Recipe Notes

Feel free to substitute the white tea with green tea (sencha or matcha would be delicious).

If you don’t have much time, you can make the tea with ½ cup hot water, then stir in a heaping ½ cup of ice to cool the tea down quickly.
