Iced Green Tea with Mint & Ginger

It is time to savor some hot-weather favorites — like this twist on the classic iced tea. I love this simple and refreshing glass of iced green tea flavored with ginger, mint, and honey.


INGREDIENTS


  • 6 cups water

  • 1/4 cup ginger, peeled and sliced

  • 3 to 6 bags green tea (depending on how strong you like your tea)

  • 1/2 cup mint leaves, tightly packed, plus extra to serve

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 1 lemon, divided


INSTRUCTIONS


  1. In a medium-sized pot, combine the water and ginger slices. Bring to a boil. Once the water boils, remove from heat and add the tea bags and mint leaves. Cover the pot and steep for about 15 minutes.

  2. Strain the brewed tea; separating the liquid from the mint leaves and tea bags. Mix in the honey and juice from half of the lemon into the tea. Transfer to a pitcher and cool to room temperature before refrigerating.

  3. Slice the second half of the lemon. When ready to serve, add 1 to 2 lemon slices into each glass, along with a few mint leaves and ice cubes. Once the tea has cooled, pour it into the glasses and serve.
