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.

Easy Lemon And Mint Iced Tea

Unlike most mint iced tea recipes this one uses regular tea bags to start (just got to have my tea!), although you can use any tea you like! Then you add fresh mint leaves to steep.

I just love the taste of fresh mint compared to the dried mint tea that you can buy in the store. It just tastes so much stronger and well just better.

Rather than adding extra sugar to this recipe the sweetening comes from the little bit of lemonade concentrate and helps to give this iced tea nice touch of lemon but isn’t too sweet.

If you like your iced tea really sweet then go ahead and add some extra sugar when the tea is done steeping or sweeten by the glass with a simple sugar syrup.

How To Make Lemon Mint Iced Tea With Fresh Mint Leaves

Steeping Iced Tea

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.

Add the fresh mint leaves and steep

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.

Enjoy! I love to serve drinks in fun glasses and my favorites are the mason jars with handles and gingham lids. I think they are just so cute and perfect for a farmhouse style look.
