Which would you pick – iced tea or iced coffee? If you’re team iced tea, you’ll love this recipe! It’s DIY Iced Mint Tea!
My garden is OVERFLOWING with mint right now. It’s just one of those herbs that keeps on growing when you pick it! I’ve been using it for countless recipes, including this homemade mint tea! If you have any fresh mint leaves on hand (from your garden or from the store), you have to try this mint tea. It’s SO refreshing and is great for your health as well!
Mint leaves have antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties. Drinking fresh mint tea is also known to aid digestion and can help cure a headache! Plus, it tastes delicious. Read on for the recipe (feel free to double or triple the recipe – I always do)!
1 cup mint leaves
4 cups water
Sweetener of choice (honey, stevia, coconut sugar, monk fruit etc.)
Add mint leaves and water to a medium to large pot.
Bring the water to a boil.
Once the water starts boiling, turn it off and let the mint leaves steep for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, remove the mint leaves from the pot with a strainer.
Sweeten your mint tea to taste.
Let the fresh tea cool for about 30 minutes.
Pour the fresh tea into a large pitcher using a strainer to catch any remaining mint leaves/pieces.
Pour your fresh mint tea over ice and enjoy! Store in the fridge for about a week.
Have you ever made your own fresh mint tea? This is one of my favorite drinks to sip all summer long! It’s so easy to make keto, low carb or sugar free if you need to! I often use stevia or honey to sweeten mine.
