The inspiration for this recipe came from a local food truck, Goatacado, that is at our Saturday morning farmer’s market. They specialize in various quinoa bowls with lots of veggies, avocado and topped with a fried egg. While these are delicious, I really love this ice tea. I don’t generally like sweet tea but this combination is perfection. I am using Stevia in my recipe since I really am careful about excess sugar and I think I have finally come up with a tea that is very similar to theirs.
This is a great way to stay hydrated when you get tired of drinking just water! Happy Summer!
4 cups boiling water
2 Peppermint tea bags (I use Pukka Three Mint Tea)
Juice of 1 medium lime
Stevia to taste
1. Boil 4 cups of water.
2. Pour water over 2 tea bags in a shatterproof pitcher (I use my 4 cup pyrex glass measuring cup).
3. Steep for 5 minutes.
4. Add lime juice.
5. Add Stevia to taste (I use the powdered form from Trader Joes).
6. Pour over ice. Garnish with a mint sprig and a slice of lime.
