I like to make a big jug of iced tea and keep it in the refrigerator so I have it on hand. If you want to do that with this recipe, just multiply the servings by however large a jug you have.

Serving Tips

The original recipe calls for using lemon tea bags. Since my stores didn’t have plain lemon tea bags, I went with a lemon zinger and it was amazing!  You can easily substitute a citrus-based tea bag depending on your taste preferences. If you have a lemon balm or lemon verbena plant in your garden, you can use that fresh as well.

spearmint

The spearmint is from my herb garden.  If you don’t have fresh spearmint, you can use dried or even a spearmint tea bag from the grocery store. You can use herbal iced tea bags if you have them on hand. Please do use freshly squeezed lemon juice. The flavor is so much better than bottled.

If you enjoyed flavored iced tea recipes, you can add fresh berries, slices of peach, and a bit of honey or stevia to your iced tea. It really is all about how you want to make it.

This is the best herbal iced tea recipe I’ve tried and, I’ll be serving the next time we have guests over. I found this recipe in Cornelia Guest’s Simple Pleasures and reprinted it with permission of the publisher.
