We’re having a heat wave! Time to cool down with a Mint Tea Slush!
MINT TEA SLUSHES
This is a really simple recipe. You can adjust it to your tastes. I like a lot of mint and on the sweeter side.
I start off with the tea. 4 cups of water to 1 cup of mint leaves plus 1/4 cup sugar. Bring to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Turn off heat to steep tea. When it reaches the desired strength. Strain into a cup or vessel to pour.
Fill ice trays –this should fill two trays– with tea. Freeze.
Put frozen tea cubes in the blender. Pulse it to crush. Add a little water if needed to work the cubes.
Pour into frozen glasses. Serve with a straw and long handled tea spoon.
Don’t stop there!
You can make tea slushes out of any kind of tea.
- Try your favorite herbal tea. Brew a bit stronger for more flavor.
- Mix it up with a bit of lemon, orange or lime. Add this citrus as juice or zest.
Make extra tea cubes and store in a freezer bag for a quick frozen treat!
