All the mint sweet tea recipes I've come across call for fresh mint, and that can be tough to find sometimes without breaking the bank. I've come by this recipe after quite a bit of experimentation, and the great part is that it can be made just about anywhere, as long as you have the ability to cool the tea back down after brewing!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups water
  • 12 cup sugar
  • 2 green tea bags
  • 1 peppermint tea bag
  • ice


  1. Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Turn off heat and add tea bags, steeping to desired strength (for me, 3-5 minutes).
  3. Remove tea bags and add ice until cool.
  4. Serve in a tall glass over ice!
