Blackberry Mint Iced Green Tea

I absolutely love tea, all types and varieties, both hot and iced teas. I drink hot tea year round and iced tea is one of my favorite summertime drinks.

I especially love teas that provide health and wellness benefits, as is the case with Botanica Science’s 14 Day Skinnytox – Organic Detox Teas. The 14 day supply consists of a morning energy green tea and an evening herbal detox tea, each comes in it’s own tea tin, made from recyclable materials and the tins are 100% reusable.

We are in right in the middle of a beautiful, sunny and warm summer here in New England, and one of my favorite warm weather drinks is iced tea. I love making my own iced teas and adding different combinations of fruits and fresh herbs.

I thought that the Organic Energy Berry Morning Tea Blend would be wonderful iced, and that blackberries and mint would complement the flavors in this tea nicely, and that certainly is the case. The resulting Blackberry Mint Iced Green Tea is absolutely delicious and so refreshing.

Blackberry Mint Iced Green Tea

I started by allowing the Organic Energy Berry Morning Tea Blend tea bags and some fresh mint to steep in boiling water for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, I pureed fresh blackberries in a blender and strained the mixture to remove the seeds.

Once the tea and mint were done steeping, I discarded the tea bags and mint leaves, and combined the tea mixture with the blackberry mixture along with a little bit of honey. I allowed this mixture to cool down a bit, then served the tea over ice along with some more fresh mint, and garnished with some additional blackberries.
