When temperatures are blazing we start looking for any possible way to cool down. Peppermint iced tea provides a double chilling effect. Not only is it cool in temperature, but our bodies translate peppermint to feel cold. Thus when you pair peppermint and ice you’ve got a tea that will drop your core temperature and your perception of the heat in just a few seconds. The recipe below is to make a single serving. To make a pitcher, use 10 or so bags. Also no need to add to the heat by boiling water. You can let this recipe steep in the sun.
2 Peppermint Tea Bags
350 mL of hot water
Steep for 8 minutes. Remove tea bags and add equal amount of ice cubes. Enjoy.
