  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Add mint leaves and steep for 15 minutes. Remove tea leaves from water with a slotted spoon, squeezing leaves to extract any additional liquid; discard leaves.
  2. Stir sugar into steeped tea; return to a boil and cook until sugar is completely dissolved and flavors combined, about 10 minutes. Pour tea concentrate into freezer-safe containers and freeze.


  • Cook's Note:
  • It is just as yummy to add the water and serve it without freezing; however, make sure that you have it all the way cooled before serving!
  • You can also use other sweeteners (stevia, honey, agave nectar, etc.), but it tastes the best with sugar. What doesn't?
  • Another suggestion is to pour it into Popsicle® molds and make frozen pops.

This sounds wonderful, but you forgot to mention how much tea to put into the recipe -- or is the mint used instead of traditional tea leaves? Thank you.

Yummy! Froze the left overs into popsicles!

I made this exactly as written up to the point where I should have put it in the freezer. I made a much smaller quantity using 2 litres of water in all and 85 grams of fresh Moroccan mint leaves...
