Iced Double Mint Tea

I grew up drinking fresh mint teas. My Grandpa (Eugene) Campbell would grow fresh peppermint and spearmint every year. We always had it prepared hot; however, now I also enjoy drinking it cold just as much. He had an ulcer most of his life and these mint teas really helped his stomach. I too have tummy problems and so I drink alot of mint and ginger teas.

I served this for my St. Patrick's Day dinner 2 years ago and everyone enjoyed it. It is very refreshing and a nice change from regular Iced Tea.


Hope you enjoy a refreshing cold glass of Mint Tea.

Ingredients

4
pure peppermint tea bags (spearmint or green tea would be good too)
15-20
fresh mint leaves

packets of truvia or your sugar of choice
ice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare tea hot and let it steep with about 10 of the fresh mint leaves dropped down in the tea for about 20 - 30 minutes. The longer the steep the stronger the flavor.

[If using more mint leaves than suggested this tea can have natural laxative effect.]

Next, fill your glass container with ice. Now add the rest of the fresh mint leaves and pour the hot tea over the ice. Let sit at least 5 minutes.

If you don't want a STRONG mint flavor just add the mint leaves to the ice and omit it from the hot tea.
