Lemon Mint Ice Tea- WHB

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.

  1. 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!
