Mary’s Mint Infused Southern Sweet Iced Tea

Southern sweet iced tea, infused with fresh mint.

Mint Infused Southern Sweet Iced Tea

I cannot believe that the unofficial end of summer, has arrived! Is it just me, or did it seem that the summer pretty much flew by this year?

This year was the first year that I grew mint in my garden and I have to say that I have really enjoyed it.

Now, yes, I did heed the warnings about growing it in a container so that it would not grow wild and take over the garden, though I did also think what a fragrant ground cover that would be!

Now I admit, more than a few of those mint leaves might have been harvested more so for a mojito here and there than for anything else, but, I also do love a good minted iced tea. 

This recipe is basically my Southern Style Sweet Iced Tea, except with an added infusion of mint, but the mint is just enough for a subtle hint without over-powering the real star here, the southern sweet iced tea. 

You can, of course, use as much mint as you like.

You may also add freshly squeezed lemons and a can of orange juice concentrate to turn it into a Southern French Mint Iced Tea. Either way, what a great way to honor the unofficial end of summer!
