Mint Iced Tea

After getting a sample of mint tea from the farmers' market AND realizing that my mint was starting to flower and needed to be cut back, I was inspired to make mint iced tea.

I combined cut up spearmint leaves with orange pekoe tea bags.

Steeped for 4 minutes.

Strained it, stirred in a few spoonfuls of honey, added ice and VOILA!

It makes for a very refreshing iced tea.


  1. Looks great! I have never gown my own mint, is it hard?

  2. Oh my gosh, mint is very easy to grow! A word of caution, I would advise planting it in a pot. I once put it in a raised bed garden and within the year, it had spread all throughout the garden.
