Homemade Mint Iced Tea

The smell of this apple mint was heavenly. The Amish guy told me how to make homemade mint iced tea with it. I decided I want to take his homemade mint iced tea and make it into a sweet tea. I admit I am a sweet tea lover.

Why makes the apple mint different than regular mint? To me, apple mint has this sweater taste to it. regular mint can be a bit strong in flavor. So if you want just a hint of mint in your mint iced tea. then apple mint is the perfect choice to use.

 

 

Mint Iced Tea Recipe Tips

So there are a few tips to make an apple mint tea perfect. So let me give them to you:

  • Always wash the apple mint leaves. This should be a no-brainer, but you be surprised at how many posts I have seen where people have not washed mints and herbs and wonder why bugs or dirt in the recipe.
  • Best to tear the mint leaves before you steep them into a tea. Tearing releases the oils from the leaves so you have that minty taste.
  • Once you steep the tea and remove the leaves, allow the tea to come to cool to room temperature before you add ice.
