Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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(R) 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. Read More

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. It isn't a syrup, nor is it a concentrate. For the mint/water ratio it is quite light. I ended up serving it cooled to room temperature as a drink, as is. If you were to dilute it anymore, then it would simply be lightly flavoured sweet water. It tasted nice for a refreshing drink. I allowed it to steep longer than 15 minutes too. I think as an ice pop this would be nice during the summer. There is no tea but maybe it could be called a herbal infusion. Thank you octoberpumpkin00 for sharing your recipe. Read More
