Freshly Brewed Ice Tea with Fresh Mint


Is there anything more refreshing than ice tea on a warm day? My Freshly Brewed Ice Tea With Fresh Mint is a fantastic ice tea recipe which is super simple and tastes amazing. I think that’s down to the addition of mint which brings a fresh and intense flavor to any recipe.

This recipe involves steeping tea bags in boiling water. My top tip when making ice tea is to not move the tea bags as they steep and when removing the tea bags from the water, do not squeeze them or the tea will taste bitter. If you like sweetened ice tea, add sweetener once you have removed the tea bags. Serve the tea over ice with slices of lemon.

To make Freshly Brewed Ice Tea With Fresh Mint, you will need the following ingredients:

I really think there is something missing in this since its so bland or am I the only one?

If you make this please be sure whatever glass you're putting the hot water in can hold it or you'll end up burning yourself nevertheless the tea hits the spot!

The mint doesn't go to well with the tea depending on the type but if you go for honey tea it's good.

My husband and I love making iced tea and we were so used to buying the powdered premade one that you just mix that when I told him we were going to try making this he looked at me with a horrified expression cause he thought for sure nothing could beat it but after a single sip this has become his go-to iced tea every summer now :)
