Tart Cherry Mint Ice Tea

I made a fabulous iced tea drink this week and added a little flavor with tart cherry and mint ice cubes. There is nothing better than sitting on my porch in the fall with a yummy drink and one of my herbal books.

You have have a lot of fun with different variations of this drink!

What you will need:

 

10 cups of water

3  Black Tea Bags

5 Green Tea Bags

2 Oolong Tea Bags

Honey

Tart Cherry Juice

Fresh Mint

 

Directions:

Fill ice cube molds with tart cherry juice and place a peppermint leaf in each cube. Place 5 cups of water in a saucepan, bring to a boil and turn down. Add 5 green tea bags and let steep for 5 min. At the same time (or after) boil 5 cups of water, turn down and add the black tea and the oolong. You are steeping the two tea concoctions separately. Once the teas are done steeping, pour the tea in a jug and add 2 cups of water. Chill for 3-5 hrs and serve with your cherry-mint ice cubes.
