It’s been a very hot summer so far, and when it’s hot, drinking icy cold iced tea is a great way to cool down. Having experimented with variations over the theme of green iced tea, I decided to pick up a few things from my green-grocer’s to see if there wasn’t a better, simpler way of making iced tea. Here’s what I came up with:
You’ll need the following:

  • A bunch of fresh mint
  • Lime
  • Sugar
  • Water

That’s it. No, really, that’s it. Here’s how you make the iced tea: Chop the mint leaves coarsely. Slice half a lime, and quarter the slices. Toss the lime and mint into a pitcher. Boil some water, and dissolve the sugar in it. Pour the sugar water into the pitcher, and swirl it all around. Fill the pitcher with cold water, and put the pitcher in the fridge. Wait a few hours. Serve.
This recipe is quick to make, and simple. It tastes great and is a great thirst-quencher.
