I haven’t always been a big fan of sweet tea. I know, I’m a terrible southerner (bless my little heart?)
But I have always loved ice cold peppermint tea. I’m not sure if it’s the area I grew up in, or that it was an Amish community, but most often when you were served tea, it was peppermint tea.
There is just nothing more refreshing on a hot day than the cooling taste of peppermint tea.
I try not to drink too much peppermint tea, but it’s hard. I used to solve the problem by simply not making it, but then Gabriel came a long, and Gabriel’s a real southern boy who drinks more tea than water.
So now there’s a gallon jar of peppermint tea in the ‘fridge all the time, calling out to me…. so I’m doing the only thing I can do, and I’m sharing the recipe with you – and making it with Truvia rather than sugar. Cuts back on the calories. 🙂
It’s mint tea. Just mint tea. No black tea, or lemon, or anything. Just water, and peppermint leaves, and sweetener. And it’s good! I’ve heard it called the nectar of the gods.

Ice Cold Peppermint Tea
- Stir peppermint leaves into boiling water and allow to cool. I like to let mine steep overnight, but you don’t have to leave it that long – just ten minutes is fine.
- Strain into a gallon container and add sweetener. I use a glass jar with a tight lid so I can shake it to dissolve the sweetener.
- Add enough water to fill up the container and chill.
- That’s it! so simple, but so good!
