Is the heat getting you down? When the temperature starts to rise I love a nice tall glass of iced tea. Nothing is as refreshing after a long day working in the garden.
This lemon mint iced tea recipe is really easy to make! Our family has been enjoying this for years since a friend first made it for us.
Bring 6 cups of water to a boil. When it comes to a boil turn the heat off and put 4 tea bags in the pot. Cover and let it steep for 5 minutes.
When the tea is finished steeping remove the tea bags and add 1 cup of tightly packed fresh mint leaves. Let this steep for 15 minutes.
After the mint has steeped strain your tea into a pitcher. Then add 3/4 of a cup of frozen lemonade concentrate. Stir well and refrigerate until cold.
I love to serve drinks in fun glasses and my favourites are the mason jars with handles and gingham lids. I think they are just so cute and perfect for a farmhouse style look.
