In honor of the first day of April and the beautiful weather and sunshine, I decided to share a refreshing favorite of mine and it's so easy to make! I like to brew up this tea whenever I have a craving for Coke. It's just a little sweet, a little minty and a lot delicious. :) This is all you need:
8 Black tea bags
1 Spearmint tea bag, or two! You can also use peppermint tea but spearmint is more subtle and refreshing if you ask me.
I use Plantation Mint
And then a little something sweet. I used a tablespoon of raw honey. But stevia is good too. Or add sugar if you're feeling a little crazy. It's your life.
Start by bringing two cups of water to a rapid boil in a small saucepan.
Remove from heat.
Add all of the the tea bags.
Let steep for 5-6 minutes.
Remove tea bags and pour tea into a large glass container.
Add sweetener of your choice while it's still hot.
Then add 6 more cups of water (room temperature is best) and allow to cool. Pour it over some ice and grab a cute straw and you'll forget that coke even exists.
And you'll forget that winter was just a few weeks ago.
What are some of your favorite summer refreshers?
