Iced Mint Tea

Ahhh...This is very refreshing.  Yumm!  On a hot day I want to be able to sip something throughout the day that refreshing and tasty.  So what’s a better taste than Mint?  Healthy too!   Mint has a cooling after taste that is great for a hot summer day.  I decided that instead of having HOT mint tea on a summer day I could make Iced Mint Tea.  YAY!  If you don’t like to drink water (like me) and want something with a extra taste, this is great!

This recipe makes up to 4-6 cups of tea

  • 2 mint tea bags or 8 dried mint leaves
  • 2 cups of hot water
  • Fresh mint (optional)
  • Cold water
  • Ice

  1. Brew mint tea bags in hot water
  2. Steep for a few minutes
  3. Add ice to serving pitcher
  4. Add hot tea (disposing the tea bags)
  5. Pour in the cold water
  6. Add mint leaves
  7. Drink and Enjoy! 

    It’s very easy and easy “go to” when the unexpected guests come over!  I just ran outside to the Garden and picked some mint, enjoying the tea now!
