Iced Mint Tea

Iced Mint Tea created by Debbwl

A summer favourite, when your garden is overgrown with mint. Easy to make, and delicious! Cook time is cooling time. Original recipe from Homemakers Magazine had 1/4 cup lime juice, but after Acadia's review, I adjusted it, as I agree that is too much and is overwhelming. I think that lemon juice compliments the taste more, as well. For a vegan version, use agave nectar!

    Mmmm....very refreshing! I didn't use green tea, just 6 bags of regular orange pekoe tea. It think next time I might use 8 for a little stronger flavor. I love how the mint felt cool on my gums. Used lemon and sweetened the pitcher with about half a T. of honey. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Perfect! We like it with the original 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1/2 cup honey.

    Very refreshing! The flavors are very well balanced. Made as written using 5 green tea bags and the lime juice option. Also used the honey option (2 tablespoons for the whole pitcher) Thanks for the post.

    I followed the recipe using tea bags and fresh mint from my garden. We found that we needed to add sugar to sweeten it a bit. Made a double batch and it's all gone!
