A new iced tea recipe I plan to try. Since I gave up soda, I’ve been drinking lots of tea, and want some variations for entertainment. I’m leaving out the sugar; I’m not really a fan of sweet tea.
- 1 quart water, boiling
- 4 tea bags
- 1 3/4 cups fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup lime juice
Mix tea bags, mint and sugar in hot water, and let steep for 15 minutes. Strain out the tea bags and mint leaves. Chill and add lime juice before serving.

I keep a small bottle of simple syrup (hot water + sugar, stir to dissolve, cool) in the fridge to add a little sweetness to my iced tea because sugar doesn’t dissolve well in cold drinks. (I know you know that; I’m just suggesting it for other people who share tea with those who like it at different levels of sweetness.)
