Iced Rose and Mint Green Tea


127togetjher copy

Well, we are just about halfway through summer now and it is hotter than ever. Nothing cools you down better on these days than a big glass of something icy cold to drink. I am such a big iced tea drinker so this one was a no brainer for me. I wanted to add a little something whimsical and fun to my iced tea this time. I love mint in my tea and I have it growing fresh in the garden so that was first on my list. Remember that rose petal sugar I used for the rose and pistachio macarons? I used the last bit of it up in this refreshing iced tea!

Iced Rose and Mint Green Tea
Makes about 7 cups of tea

5 green tea bags
4 cups water
3 cups ice
1/2 cup rose petal sugar
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Pour over tea bags and steep for 3 minutes. Remove tea bags and add ice.

For the simple syrup:
Combine rose sugar and mint leaves with 1/2 cup water and bring to a boil. Cook until sugar is dissolved. Add to iced tea to taste.
