Tangerine Mint Iced Tea recipe

Tangerine Mint Iced Tea

0 0 0 No comments

We’ve given traditional iced tea a new twist with tangerine and mint. The addition of fresh mint leaves makes this iced tea a cool and refreshing summer drink. And for mint lovers, it’s perfect any time of the year. We’re fortunate enough to live in an area where we can grow mint all year long on our patio, so we always have it on hand. It’s an easy plant to grow in the garden or in a pot on the windowsill. And with just a small number of leaves, you can infuse the tea with a minty, aromatic flavor. Tangerines are sweeter than oranges and the flavor is more intense. It’s a nice complement to the black tea, but you can substitute oranges or even clementines in this recipe. They’re all delicious.
