Iced Double Mint Tea

Kim Biegacki


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.

pure peppermint tea bags (spearmint or green tea would be good too)
fresh mint leaves
packets of truvia or your sugar of choice


1Prepare 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.]
2Next, 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.
3Ready to serve.
(Tonight, I served mine with grapes, sliced strawberries and cheesy crisps). Enjoy.

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