I came up with this refreshing and healthy homemade strawberry green tea idea when I had a surplus of fresh strawberries in my fridge. They were already two days old and I didn't want them to go bad so I thought of experimenting with them.

I  boiled  the strawberries with water and sugar and made a syrup. It tasted great! I kept it in my fridge for two days and made strawberry tea - green as well as black and strawberry milk.
It was a hit  in my house and  now I don't have to think twice before buying a big box of strawberries.

Here I  am posting the recipe for strawberry green tea made with fresh strawberries.
Enjoy the goodness of fresh strawberries with the benefits of green tea!
