Originated in China, green tea is often known as a sort of tea that produced from something called Camellia sinensis. When mentioning green tea, people usually think of matcha, which is green tea leaves ground down to a powder. Thus, in this article, every time I say ‘green tea,' it means green tea powder or matcha, not green tea leaves.

  • Mix your green tea with plain water (about 2 cups)

I did not give you the exact amount of fruits that you need because I think with this recipe, it depends on your fruit preference. One thing you should remember is they contain a lot of juice inside. Try to keep the balance!


  • Add sea salt or black salt into the green tea drinks to improve the benefits as well as flavors
  • You could use cumin water, fennel water or coconut water instead of plain water
  • In case you could not find fresh ingredients or might be in hurry, frozen veggies or fruits are still fine


I hope that the list of green tea detox drinks helps you have a wiser choice when you decide to detoxify your body. All of them are simple, tasty and a wise choice for summer. To maintain good health, I often go into detox every 6 months.
