Mint & Lemongrass Iced Tea

Mint & Lemongrass Iced Tea

It’s hot!  How about a nice glass of iced herb tea? With the mint and lemon grass competing for space in one of my raised beds, I decided to help all of us out by taking some of each and combining them into a cooling drink.

There are so many recipes out there for herb teas, but you just bring water to boiling, stir in chopped leaves and some sweetener and let it brew.

Ingredients

4 sprigs of mint, leaves, and stem

4 stalks of lemon grass with the bulb attached

4 cups water

1-2 tbs honey

Directions

Wash the herbs under cold running water.

Fill a large saucepan with the water and toss in the herbs.

Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

Strain into a container. Add honey to taste. Let cool.

Pour into a pretty jug or glass and add ice and lemon or lime slices or wedges if you like.
