Here is another wonderful iced green tea recipe if your a fan of peaches!.

Here is an iced green tea recipe that is from better homes and gardens and has gotten very good reviews.
*12 cups water
*1/4 cup sugar (but I suggest replacing sugar with honey)
*3 inches fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
*12-16 green tea bags
*Orange peel strips
Note: As you will see, the strawberries, limes and oranges are for decorating purposes. You can use as much or little as you'd like.
1) In a large saucepan combine water, sugar, and ginger. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer for 5 minutes and remove from heat. Then add the tea bags, let stand covered for 3 minutes. Remove the tea bags, then strain and discard the ginger.
2) Put your tea into a 1 gallon pitcher or punch bowl. Cover, and let cool for about an hour. I would suggest letting it chill for a little longer however, just to make sure your drinking "iced tea" and not "kind of cold" tea. I would suggest at least 6 hours, but preferably at least 12.
3) Meanwhile, alternate your strawberries, lime quarters, and orange peel strips on a 12 inch wooden skewer. Place this inside your pitcher or bowl for decoration. You'll also get a small amount of flavor from the fruits as well.
4) When everything is ready, pour your iced tea over ice cubes and enjoy!

Another Great Iced Green Tea Recipe I found
*2 cups water
*1 cup Splenda low-calorie sweetener (I hate sugar but you can't use honey for this recipe. Go for less sugar if you can help it.)
*1 teaspoon ground ginger
*1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
*6 bags of green tea (or 6 ounces of leaves)
*4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
How To Make It:
1) Put water, splenda, ginger, and lemon peel in a medium sized saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat so it's a gentle boil, and cook for about 7-8 minutes. Remove from heat and add the green tea, then steep for about 10 minutes. Make sure to move the tea around a little so it diffuses everywhere in the mixture. (If you are using whole tea leaves, make sure to put the leaves in some type of strainer so they aren't floating around your mixture everywhere!)
2) Remove the tea, then put the 4 teaspoons of lemon juice into the mixture. Now its time to cover and chill your brew!
3) To make a glass of this, pour 1/4 cup of your tea mixture into a glass, followed by 3/4 cup of sparkling water, seltzer water, or club soda. Add ice cubes and you have yourself a delicious drink full of health benefits!
