Refreshing Orange Mint Tea

Although this is called orange mint tea there is no actual tea in there, so it is more than an infusion. The mint leaves are steeped in the mixture though, like tea would be.

After dissolving the honey or sugar in the orange mint tea, you may cool it and freeze it for future use if you want. It freezes just fine. Else just serve it with plenty of ice.

This is a wonderful drink for the warmer months or whenever you want something refreshing. The citrus flavors team wonderfully with the mint and you will love this magical combination. Continue reading
