Spearmint tea is a refreshing herbal tea that is very popular during the hot summer months, but it can be difficult to find an Iced Spearmint Tea Recipe online. It utilizes loose spearmint leaves to create the unique flavor and pleasant aroma that is associated with this tea. I decided to create this Iced Spearmint Tea Recipe to help the Herbal Tea Time Readers brew a delicious cup of minty tea.

This is an Iced Spearmint Tea Recipe that takes you through each step of making this refreshing herbal tea. I decided to begin this guide by including one of my favorite brands of spearmint leaves that can be used as the primary ingredient in this recipe. If you are new to making iced spearmint tea, it is a good idea to follow this simple recipe. Experienced spearmint tea drinkers can read it and consider editing, if desired. I personally love this recipe, but I always encourage the Herbal Tea Time readers to customize recipes to help fit their personal taste preferences. The flavors that you enjoy are unique, and experimenting can help you create the perfect spearmint iced tea for your taste buds.
Choosing the Best Iced Spearmint Tea Leaves
Before you start the Iced Spearmint Tea Recipe, it is a good idea to purchase the main ingredient. Selecting and purchasing high quality spearmint tea leaves is imperative. All of my spearmint tea guides (including this Iced Spearmint Tea Recipe) include loose spearmint leaves as the primary ingredient. Loose leaf tea is healthier and more fresh than tea bags. I included this product description to make sure you get started on the right track. Wild Foods is a great tea brand that provides top notch loose teas. Their loose spearmint leaves (Spearmint Serene) is a perfect fit for this Iced Spearmint Tea Recipe. Wild Foods spearmint leaves are fresh and have a very pleasant smell. I can usually smell the freshness before I open the bag.
