Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • In this recipe, I go for a very subtle mint flavor by adding it to pitcher/individual glass. If you are looking for a more minty flavor, add mint springs to the tea while it is still hot and steeping. 
  • You can adjust the sweetness based on how much sugar you add. You can add more or less depending on what you like. 
  • Be sure you let the tea come to room temperature prior to refrigerating. 

Storage

You will want to store your strawberry mint tea in the fridge in a pitcher for up to 3 days. Stir before pouring. 

How do I serve Iced Tea?

This drink tends to separate a bit when placed in the fridge, so you will want to stir it and then pour over ice. Add mint of garnish if you choose and add some cut fresh strawberries!

What kind of mint should I use to make strawberry mint tea?

In this recipe, we tend to use spearmint the most, but you can use any flavor of mint. Grab what is in season and use that. I have heard rumors that chocolate mint is a delicious addition.
