Let's face it. It's been a really freaking hot summer. Too hot for coffee, but I still need my caffeine. And sometimes iced coffee is way too much work. I typically turn to iced tea in the summer, because I can make it by the pitcher and it takes minimal effort. Adding a bit of peppermint makes this summer classic extra refreshing.
You will need:
3-4 cups water, brought to boil and slightly cooled
3-4 black tea bags
1 peppermint tea bag
1 pitcher approx. 3 quarts
Place tea bags into the pitcher. Slowly pour in boiled water. Let steep for approximately 20 minutes. Remove tea bags. Fill pitcher the rest of the way with water and ice. Keep in the refrigerator.
It's that easy. Enjoy this cooling summer treat!
