Fresh Mint Tea-Lemonade

Fresh Mint Tea-Lemonade

This tea looks somewhat like the Green River when it’s finished, so we’ve nicknamed it “Green River Tea”. Don’t worry, it doesn’t taste like the river.

Total time: 20 min Active time: 10 min Serves: 10


1 large bunch fresh mint, stems and all (about 3 cups packed)

6 cups water

Juice from 1-2 lemons

½ to ¾ cup sugar, depending on sweetness preference

6 cups ice


  1. Wash the mint well and add it with the water in a pot. Bring the water to a simmer and turn off the heat. Let the mint steep for 10-15 minutes.

  2. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher. Stir in the lemon juice and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Add the ice and stir.

  3. Refrigerate until serving.
