I can't wait to try this recipe! I've got the tea and the lime, I need to get some agave nectar. Maybe I'll try honey, since I have that on hand.

Mmmm, that looks refreshing. I am doing some outdoor work now and waiting for that heat wave you experienced in the next day or two to roll over my way.

Wish WE were having a heat wave. It's still a little on the cool side here. This green tea cooler sounds pretty yummy though.

This sounds so great. You should also try adding pomegranate juice to your tea, also a good treat.
