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:

Came from the lilac shandy staying for the iced tea haha.
No sugar?!! WHAAAT everyone knows unsweetened tea has a funny taste, I'll be adding some sugar to mine for sure..
Wow totally obsesed with it will be making it a lot more often now that summer is around the corner.
Okay so I cheated a bit and didnt add mint cause i hate the taste lol but i did add some brown sugar to it and had it with chocolate.
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!
Hopefully I make this right on the first try wish me luck guys!
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 :)
I actually used strawberry tea instead of normal tea it was the BOMB.
My kids love this so much and the fresh mint makes it even more refreshing.
Best homemade iced tea i've ever made for sure this takes the cake!
Great idea can't wait to find more refreshing things to drink this summer.
You can experiement for sure with this and add some sugar to it too!
