Lemon Mint Ice Tea- WHB

July 14, 2007 at 10:41 am 9 comments

A patch of mint and thirsty summer house guests
are a winning combination.

Susan at Food Blogga is hosting Weekend Herb Blogging this week.
WHB is the hot brainchild of Kalyn at Kalyn’s Kitchen.

I hope some of the WHB-ers and readers out there will enjoy this tea as much
as we do here in Virginia, USA.

There are many varieties of mint, most (that I know of) will work well in this.
I have used Peppermint here.

Lemon Mint Ice Tea

Make a simple syrup using 2 cups of sugar
and 2/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice.

Remove from the heat when sugar dissolves
add one cup of fresh chopped mint, then add 4 cups
of fresh brewed tea.

Allow to cool and then strain.

Serve with a lemon slice and sprig of mint over ice.

What a great way to cool off. Most hot house guests will love you for it.

    This looks yummy!
    A glass of sweet tea would be perfect right about now. I posted on orange mint tea not to long ago and also a lemon basil tea that is perfect.
    If we southerners know anything it is sweet tea.

    This is the perfect summertime refresher. I usually make mine with spearmint, but I’ll try peppermint next time. Thanks, Sue, and stay cool!

    I can do that! I but ‘syrop’ here – comes in all flavors (mint, tea, lemon, lime, cranberry, cola, orange, to name about a tenth). So…I can take a bit of ‘tea’, a bit of ‘lemon’ add water and some fresh mint! I find the mint syrop too, well, minty..
    Sounds lovely!

What Spice Are You

You Are Cilantro

The bad news is that
there are some people
who can't stand you.
The good news is that
most people love you more
than anything else in the world.
You are distinct, unusual, fresh,
and very controversial.
And you wouldn't have it
any other way.
