Iced Raspberry Mint Green Tea

The South Florida summer isn’t showing any signs of letting up. It’s 90+ degrees and humid most days, and my electric bill scared me last month. I think now is the perfect time for an iced tea, and you would too if you were down here with me! I do love good, old-fashioned sweet tea, but this recipe caught my eye. Green tea is packed with antioxidants, and I just love mint and raspberry tea. I’ve never had them together, but I’m about to!

The Ingredients

There aren’t a lot of ingredients to this iced tea, as you can see. My local Publix carries Bigelow tea but didn’t have the Bigelow Red Raspberry tea. No matter, though, because I was able to find Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger.

I did find the raspberries expensive at $4.99. The mint ($2.29) was leftover from another recipe, so that worked out well. I rarely use all the fresh herbs I buy unless I do some major meal planning, so this worked out really well.

The Process

This is another easy-to-make recipe, with just 2 steps to make and another 2 steps to prepare. The preparation steps took me 15 minutes. Muddling the raspberries and mint leaves to serve took 2 1/2, so I had my tea ready a little quicker than the 20 minutes listed (not including time to cool in the refrigerator).

I wasn’t sure if my glass pitcher is heatproof, so I played it safe and steeped the tea in a ceramic serving bowl. I added a cup of water to the dish, microwaved it for 1 1/2 minutes, then added the tea bags. After 10 minutes, I felt the mixture was cool enough to add to my glass pitcher. I added the additional 3 cups of water and left the tea in the refrigerator overnight to cool.

Taste
My husband and I both agreed this tea has a clean taste. He raved about it, in fact. The first thing I noticed was the raspberry scent, but the green tea is the stronger taste. I could still taste the raspberry, though, and just a little bit of the mint. It's slightly tart, especially if you don't add any sweetener. I tried with with and without and enjoyed both. I also tried it with and without the mint and raspberries and didn't notice a big difference in taste. I'll probably skip both next time since the berries were a little pricey.
