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. It’s delicious, refreshing, and perfect on a hot summer day. And since we grow mint all year long on our patio, we usually have all of the ingredients right on hand. After I steep the tea, I transfer it to a large pan where I mix everything together. Since hot liquid can easily crack glass (speaking from experience), I wait until the tea has cooled before I pour it into my glass serving pitcher.

Tangerine Mint Iced Tea

  • Servings: About 1 1/2 quarts
  • Print


  • 3 cups boiling water
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 8 individual-size tea bags, such as Lipton
  • 8 mint leaves
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
  • 1/3 cup tangerine juice


Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat; add the tea bags and mint leaves and steep for 5 minutes. Remove the bags and pour the tea through a strainer into a larger pan, or heat-resistant pitcher, to catch the mint leaves. Discard the mint leaves. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Add 3 cups of cold water and the tangerine juice. Stir to combine. Pour into your serving pitcher when cool.
