Ingredients

  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 green tea bag

Instructions

  • Cut the grapefruit, then squeeze it in a large citrus squeezer. Remove seeds from the pulp with a spoon.
  • Estimate the juice volume, then fill a large cup or glass with water with a volume equal to the difference.
  • Heat the water in microwave or in a pan, then pour it over the squeezer and the pulp, into the squeezer's container where the juice is. This will add more pulp and naringin to the juice.
  • Pour hot water and grapefruit mix back into the cup. Use a spoon to place the remaining pulp into the cup should you wish to consume it all. 
  • Add a green tea bag to the hot juice and let it rest for 2 minutes. Mix in the tea, juice and pulp with a long spoon or a chopstick, and consume immediately.
