Invigorating mint and freshly brewed tea go together like peanut butter and jelly...truly a match made in heaven. We too, grew up drinking this beverage...our friends grew mint in their yard and we'd eagerly pick some on each visit, then hurry home to prepare our tea. I enjoy it sweetened and minus the lemon, although a slice perched on the rim of the glass is always eye-appealing. There are recipes with alternative methods such as using peppermint flavored tea, but fresh mint is truly the way to go. If you love iced tea, don't miss this one!!
This is another fabulous "Bev" recipe! Made this for our 4th of July cookout and we loved it! It is so refreshing and the mint added so much. Used a little less than a cup of Splenda for the sweetening, otherwise made as directed. Thank you so much, Bev for sharing all your wonderful recipes!
Excellent recipe, Bev! My grandmother used to make something similar while I was growing up, and waking up this morning to an already 80-plus degree day, I found myself craving some. I'll use this recipe all summer. Thanks!
Nice, very nice!
Awesome Iced Tea Bev. This is just wonderful. It is so flavorful and refreshing. I usually don't sweeten tea, hot or cold ...but this is just perfect. I used fresh mint from the garden and meyer lemons. I will be making this often for myself. Thank you so much for sharing.
This is awesome! I just tried the tea I made from this recipe and it's fabulous. I had an awful day and this just made everything better. Of course it wasn't the exact recipe, I had to work with what I had, including different teas, one type a label-less mystery tea and the other African Red Bush. I had a ton of mint because it was taking over the garden. And I used about a cup more water, 1/4 cup less sugar, and 2 extra tea bags! I don't have lemon, but it's probably 10 times better with it. Thanks for the delicious pick-me-up!
My tea has never tasted so good. Perfectly sweetened, with a touch of mint, I'll be drinking this one all summer long. Now I don't have to be embarrased to serve my tea to guests.
This will be in my fridge all summer. Thanks a lot for posting!
Delicious iced tea, Bev! Very refreshing with a wonderful minty taste.I used regular tea this time and left out the sugar and the next time I'll use green tea to see how we like that. Thanks for posting this, Bev- it's a keeper!
Perfect!!! Nothing is better than an iced tea like this on a balmy Florida evening. Thanks!
