Recently I was enjoying lunch on the rooftop deck of my friend Carrie Anne. She had made a pitcher of mint sun tea and over the course of our lovely lunch, I drank it all. So where, you might wonder, is the rest of the tea pictured to the right? I drank that, too, before I could even capture a decent photo. No self-restraint, I tell you.
Preparation time: 5 minutes, plus brewing time
Number of servings (yield): 6
I remember making this when I lived with my parents in Seattle: they have a huge deck. Alas now I don’t have any outdoor space, so make hot black tea, add fresh mint to it and then pour the whole thing over ice cubes and add a few lemon slices.
Thanks for this alternate method, Olga! Your version is also suited to those that need a cooling immediately.
It’s time for lemon mint tea! Thanks for this recipe; the one I have used for years uses 1/2 can of frozen lemonade (which also helps cool it slightly), but this looks like a great way to use no sugar.
Lisa, you know I love your lemon mint tea! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Your version is closer to my favorite (daytime-appropriate) summer drink of all time – the Arnold Palmer. Mmmm. Stay cool!
Awww – my Mom made a gallon jug of this every single day of the summer when we were kids. I think I’ll make some for Friday evening. Invited the neighbors over for a Middle Eastern cookout and I have some Moroccan mint tea I can use.
