I love both mint and iced tea and this mint iced tea recipe is a stellar combination of the two with surprisingly little effort. It uses fresh mint to make a delicious brew. Just combine black tea with mint and sugar and that's about all there is to it! Other recipes call for mint tea bags but that's just not the same as using real mint leaves.
Mint itself is so brisk and invigorating that of course it makes for a really fresh-tasting tea. While the mint is brewing with the tea, it fills your whole kitchen with a delightul minty smell!
The amount of sugar in this recipe is less than what a normal sweet tea recipe would call for. I like it that way because it doesn't overpower the mint or tea flavors. Really, I think you could leave out the sugar completely and it would still be delicious. You could even serve an unsweetened version with simple syrup on the side.
Makes a half gallon of iced tea (8 cups).
