Bigelow Green Tea steeped and cooled with fresh lemon slices and fresh mint over ice. Clean and refreshing, a perfect flavor combination for everyday enjoyment.

If you grew up in the South chances are you had a pitcher of Sweet Iced Tea in your fridge at all times. When I moved out of my parent’s house
one of the first questions I had was, “How much sugar do I need to make Sweet Tea?”.

The funny thing is there is no exact recipe. Every family’s recipe is slightly different. Everyone has perfected their own Sweet Tea.

Lemon and Mint Iced Green Tea

As I got older my everyday sweetened black iced tea changed to Iced Green Tea. Over time I developed my own recipe and have perfected it. I use 2 tea bags, fresh lemons and fresh mint from my garden. Steeped fresh daily using Bigelow Green Tea Bags for a fresh and cleaner tasting tea.

I still occasionally have a tall glass of iced sweet black tea. It still sparks the feelings of home and memories of the iced tea pitcher in the fridge.

 

When you are in Walmart head over to the Tea/Coffee aisle and do yourself a favor and grab a box of Bigelow Tea.

Bigelow Tea, America’s largest family-owned tea company, is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. Bigelow began in a New York City townhouse,
where Ruth Campbell Bigelow developed the iconic “Constant Comment”® tea and has expanded to a worldwide market offering more than 130 varieties of flavored, green, organic, herbal, decaffeinated and iced teas.

Here is my Iced Green Tea with lemon and mint recipe.
