Pomegranate/lime iced tea!

I loooove this iced tea, especially now that it's hot and I can't even think about drinking hot tea. This recipe is in The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone. I used fresh pomegranates and juiced them but you can use unsweetened pomegranate juice.  You will need:
2 pomegranates or 1 cup of unsweetened pomegranate juice
1 lime
5-6 green tea bags
Boil water and seep the tea bags for about 10 minutes. Fill a pitcher with ice and pour the tea over the ice. Stir in the pomegranate juice. Add some fresh lime juice and throw in 2 lime peels. You can add maple syrup as a sweetener but I didn't add anything. There you have it! Add more lime or pomegranate juice as you like. The lime is strong. This tea is naturally decaffeinated and the pomegranate had antioxidants. Green tea also has antioxidants and so many other health benefits. Drink this if you are trying to stop drinking coffee. Happy summer!!
