Minty Ice Lemon Tea
Prep time
Total time
The only thing you need is time - 1 to 2 hours to steep, and time to chill the drink, so make this one day ahead so you can chill the drink and freeze the tea cubes.
Yield: 2 litres
  • 2 litres water
  • 2 English Breakfast tea bags
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • 150 grams sugar (2/3 cup)
  • 60 ml lemon juice, fresh or bottled (1/4 cup)
  1. Bring the water to a boil. Remove from heat, add in tea bags and mint leaves. Steep for at least 1 hour (up to 2 hours).
  2. Remove the tea bags and mint leaves. Stir in sugar and lemon juice, tasting and adding more sugar or lemon juice if needed. Chill in the refrigerator completely before serving.Freeze some tea with additional mint leaves in ice cube trays so that you can add them into your drink without diluting it.
