Minted Green Iced Tea

We really aren’t soda people (never have been), but iced tea, well that is our drink! We make black or regular iced tea all the time at home, but when we feel like something a bit different, this is what we turn too. It’s packed with antioxidants from the green tea and is soothing from the mint. We don’t like sweet tea so much, but if you do, just add the sugar to your own taste.

Enjoy!

We buy caffeine-free green tea, but you could use your favorite brand for this. Also, you can replace the green tea with camomile tea and drink this before bedtime.

    I always use 4-6 green tea bags and one Plantation Mint tea bag for each pitcher of tea. I skip the sugar but sometimes throw in a piece of frozen fruit.

      Oh, we love the idea of frozen fruit added to the tea! Great idea!
