Grapefruit Green Tea Thirst Quencher
Warning: Grapefruit is known to interact with certain medication. If you are taking medication, please consult with a pharmacist beforehand.
- 1 green tea bag
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1 grapefruit
- 1-2 tsp honey
- pinch of salt
- Pour boiling water over tea bag in a small glass pitcher or jar. Steep tea for 3-4 minutes and remove tea bag. Stir in honey and salt. Allow to chill in the fridge for at least a few hours (If you didn’t do this step beforehand, just use less water to make the tea and then make up for the rest with ice.)
- When ready to drink, juice grapefruit. I use a manual juicer. One grapefruit gives about 1/2 to 1/3 cup of juice. (I don’t believe in wasting, so I eat the pulp!)
- Combine juice with tea and enjoy!
Note: You can totally experiment with other citrus fruit here as well.

I love grapefruit! It makes my stomach feel good. Your photos look so good, it makes me feel I want to make that drink right now.
Thank you dear!
Hi there again;)

Check out my post:)
Thank you so much! Let me check out the details!
Hi Annika! Thank you for sharing. never tried green tea (that I drink a lot of) with grapefuit,it sounds as such a great idea!
You are most welcomed. I drink a lot of tea as well but green tea on its own is not my favourite. But as a chilled drink with some flavouring, it is great!
What an awesome and refreshing drink, Annika! Grapefruit is my favorite fruit! Speaking of which, I have one staring right at me at this very moment 🙂
Haha… hope you tried this drink with it!
I agree, there is no juice that quenches thirst quite so well as grapefruit! And the colour is just so beautiful. In New Zealand, almost everyone had a grapefruit tree in their backyard but it was always the yellow kind, which are twice as bitter as the pink. I think that modern tastes have changed to prefer the sweeter version, but I’ll always have a soft spot for the yellow.
Bitter foods are generally quite healthy, so keep your soft spot for the yellow ones. I will see if these are available here and try them out!
Sounds amazing and the pictures are beautiful!
Looks amazing. Great way to drink green tea which i do not like by itself. Pictures as usual are gorgeous!
Thank you my dear. You are always too kind!
This sounds so truely delicious, I am getting thirsty by just looking at it. The color of the grapefruit pops out so well on the photos, just beautiful.
Haha… I know, nature can be very impressive. And to think that they have to add artificial colouring to the processed versions!
