How to make iced green tea

We are not soft drinks people (we never have been), but iced tea, that's our drink! We make regular black tea or ice cream all the time at home, but when we feel something different, this is what we turn to as well. It is full of antioxidants thanks to green tea and is relaxing from mint.

The key to extra tasty iced tea is to make it ahead of time. If you were to make tea and then pour it into a pile of ice, it will have a diluted taste. Instead, we make a batch and then let it cool, at least at room temperature. Then we add ice.

If you are willing to experiment with other teas, we highly recommend iced chamomile tea. You can still add the mint and lemon.

We buy caffeine-free green tea, but you could use your favorite brand for this. Also, you can replace green tea with other teas, one of my favorites is chamomile tea.

Makes 4 drinks

Will need

6 green tea bags

2 cups of water or more to taste

1/4 cup sugar, optional

8 mint leaves

1 orange, thinly sliced



    In a large saucepan, bring 2 cups of water and 1/4 cup of sugar to a boil, turn off the heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add tea bags and 8 mint leaves. Steep for about 8 minutes. Try and then adjust with more sugar if needed.

    Discard the tea bags and mint. Cold. Fill 4 glasses to the brim with ice. Add the tea and garnish with mint leaves and a slice of orange.
