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.

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!

Food for Thought…What kind of beverage have you tried as a frozen version? Perfect Punch? Lemonade? Maybe soda or even coffee? I love to hear your ideas in a comment below!
