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.

How to Make Iced Double Mint Tea

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.]
  2. 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.
  3. Ready to serve.
    (Tonight, I served mine with grapes, sliced strawberries and cheesy crisps). Enjoy.

    Here is link for my cheesy crispies. Cheesy Crisps
  4. If you don't want a STRONG mint flavor just add the mint leaves to the ice and omit it from the hot tea.
