Minty Summer Iced Tea

Refreshing lemon balm and mint iced tea for summer 🍋🌿

  • 8 Cups water
  • Juice of 4 lemons
  • 1 big plain tea bag or 4 small ones
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 handfuls of fresh mint
  • 2 handfuls of fresh lemon balm
  • A few extra sprigs for garnish (optional)
  • Ice cubes

Gather your fresh herbs and lightly rinse them in the sink. Add half of the water (4 cups) to a sauce pan and bring to a gentle boil, then turn off heat and add in the herbs and tea bags. Cover the pan and let infuse for 15-20 minutes. After this time, strain the tea into a heat proof pitcher and stir in sugar, lemon juice and remaining 4 cups of water. Let cool and serve over ice, garnished with fresh sprigs of lemon balm and mint if desired. Enjoy! ☀️
