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 grow mint all year long on our patio, so we always have mint leaves on hand. It’s an easy plant to grow in the garden or in a pot on a windowsill. With so many uses in the kitchen, from salads and flavored waters to soups and sorbets, we think mint is an ideal plant for an herb container.


  • Orange juice can be substituted for tangerine juice.
  • After I steep the tea, I transfer it to a large pan or heat-resistant pitcher where I mix everything together. Hot liquid can easily crack glass (speaking from experience), so I wait until the tea has cooled before I pour it into my glass serving pitcher.
