Do you ever purchase pre-packaged bottles of tea? Me too. But I won’t be buying peppermint tea anymore!
This Peppermint Tea Recipe really only has two ingredients. Total cost of these two ingredients? Less than .05! A pre-packaged bottle of tea can cost $1 or more!
This recipe does use sugar. However, a teaspoon of sugar only has 20 calories. And you can certainly replace that with agave or raw sugar if you prefer a less processed ingredient.
Peppermint Tea Recipe
1 tsp dried peppermint
1 tsp sugar
8 oz boiling water
Add the peppermint and sugar to a measuring cup. Pour 8 oz of boiling water over. Allow to steep for 3 minutes. Strain. Pour over ice to cool and make iced tea. Add additional sweetener if you choose.
Dried peppermint leaves may not be an ingredient you already have in your home. However, you will find it is easily available in any health food store and many grocery stores. I prefer to buy it in bulk to get the best price.
My favorite time to drink peppermint tea is in the afternoon. I make a recipe in the morning. Then I pour it over ice in an insulated cup and carry it with me on my errands in the afternoon. When do you like to drink peppermint tea?
