Ginger Mint Berry Iced Tea


  • Author: Jocelyn Brown

Description

This tasty, refreshing and easy to make ginger mint berry iced tea is perfect for your next family barbecue or any get together this summer! 


Ingredients

Scale

4 tea bags of mint tea of choice, I used Tazo Refresh Mint 

2” ginger root, peeled and smashed with a meat mallet

1 ½ cups fresh or frozen berries, divided

8 cups water

4 tablespoons honey

ice

mint sprigs and lemon wedges for garnish


Instructions

  1. Boil water in a large pot. Once boiling turn off burner and add tea bags and ginger. Let steep for about 4 minutes. Add 1 cup of berries and steep for 8 to 10 minutes more.

  2. Pour tea through a sieve into a large pitcher or other heat-safe container, mashing the fruit to squeeze out their juices. Discard the solids. Add the honey and stir.

  3. Let cool to room temperature – about 2 hours. Or chill in fridge for about one hour.

  4. Serve over ice and garnish with remaining berries, lemon, and sprig of mint.

Notes

*For the tea I used Tazo Refresh Mint – a peppermint and spearmint blend (certainly any mint tea will work!)

*I prefer frozen berries to fresh in this case, because they will help cool down the tea after brewing and they are then easier to extract their juice into the tea.

*If you don’t have a mallet to smash the ginger, you can roughly chop it. Don’t worry too much about perfectly peeling it, as you will discard the ginger after brewing.
