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.


4 sprigs of mint, leaves, and stem

4 stalks of lemon grass with the bulb attached

4 cups water

1-2 tbs honey


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.
