Green Jasmine-Mint Iced Tea With Lemon

Green Jasmine-Mint Iced Tea With Lemon
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Here we balance the mildly grassy flavor and slightly astringent mouthfeel of green tea with honey and lemon. Oversteeped green tea can be bitter, so don’t brew it any longer than 3 minutes. And be sure to steep in simmering water: water that looks like it’s steaming, with little bubbles, but not boiling.

Ingredients
Prep: 10 minutes | Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes (including 2 hours chilling time)
  • 1/4 cup
    loose green jasmine tea, or 12 green jasmine tea bags
  • 1/2 cup
    fresh mint leaves, plus more whole sprigs for garnish
  • 4 cups
    simmering water
  • 1/2 cup
    lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup
    honey
  • 4 cups
    cold water
Instructions
  1. Steep loose tea (or tea bags) and mint leaves in simmering (not boiling) water for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Strain the tea (or remove tea bags and mint leaves) and pour into a large pitcher. Stir in lemon juice and honey until the honey is dissolved. Add cold water. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Serve over ice with mint sprigs, if desired.
