I have been obsessed with making Fresh Mint Iced Tea this summer. It has been hotter than normal in Santa Monica, so I have been guzzling this stuff down and making it just about every day. I even bring it to the beach, because it’s so refreshing. Mint has many properties that also help cool the body down. I get my mint fresh at the farmers market, but you can buy it at the health food store too. Sometimes I add sweetener like honey or agave and sometimes I don’t, adjust the sweetness to your liking.
1/2c. Fresh mint leaves packed
1 tsp. Honey or agave (optional)
1)Boil 1 Quart of water or 4 cups
2)Tear up Mint leaves and put in teapot, put in honey or agave sweetener, pour boiling water over tea leaves, let sit 10 min, place pot in fridge for 6 or more hours, and your tea will be ready. Feel free to add ice when serving
If you want you can make ice cubes out of the tea too, if you find you are making it a lot.
