You'll be amazed at how quick and easy this iced peppermint tea recipe is to make. Once you've started making your own iced tea from scratch, you won't be tempted by store-bought iced teas any longer!
There are so many reasons why peppermint tea is much-loved. This herbal tisane is incredibly good for us and so very versatile, too. Not only delicious and refreshing served hot, iced, or even at room temperature, this helping tea can also provide topical benefits (in a tea steam, compress, or foot soak, for example).
Even so, we tend to associate peppermint tea with cooler weather, when a crisp autumn day or chilly winter's evening has us reaching for more seasonal teas, like ginger, cinnamon, or peppermint... But peppermint is an excellent choice for refreshing iced tea, as well. Peppermint is a natural coolant and, with its minty taste, this tea is absolutely delicious served over ice.
This iced peppermint tea recipe is almost the same as the recipe for hot peppermint tea. As a general rule, aim to use about twice as many teabags (or twice as much loose-leaf tea) when you're making an iced version (rather than a hot version) of any herbal tea.
Iced peppermint tea is wonderful with a splash or slice of citrus, such as orange, lemon, or lime. You may want to add a bit of organic honey or sugar to taste, as well.
This iced peppermint tea recipe increases wonderfully, so why not make up a big jug to enjoy out on the back porch with some friends on a hot summer's evening? Or take a glass of this refreshingly lovely tea and your favorite book out to the hammock for some relaxing self-care time.
