I've been making my iced tea at home on the weekends this summer and this weekend the mint has really popped! I decided to simply add a couple handfuls along with some lemon slices to amp up the flavor and it was so worth it. The result is a refreshing, calorie-free drink you can sip on without any of the guilt! Plus, if you are not so into drinking plain water, you may really like this beverage. This Fresh Mint Iced Tea is an easy way to serve a pretty drink for guests at any barbecue or summer gathering. Cheers!
Fresh Mint Iced Tea
Recipe by Ali Caron, RD
4 tea bags (peach, green, or white teas work best)
Two handfulls of mint
1 lemon, sliced into rounds
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Pour into a bowl that contain tea bags and let it cool for about 10 minutes. Fill a serving pitcher about halfway with ice. Pour cooled tea (with tea bags removed) into pitcher. Add another 1-2 cups of tea if needed. Add lemon slices and mint to pitcher and stir. Serve immediately or the taste will only improve as it sits in the fridge for up to a week!
