How to Make After 8 Chocolate Mint Iced Tea

This is my husband’s absolute favorite iced tea that I make. I first made it for him when we lived in Iowa, and I had an overabundance of chocolate mint in my garden…It took over, and I needed to figure out a way to use it all up. It is southern-style in that it is a sweet tea. ~ Kimberly Edwards

Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 5 min
Serve With: You can make an alcoholic version of this drink by adding 1/2 shot of creme de menthe liqueur, and 1/2 shot of creme de cacao to a 16 oz highball.
* Tip: Don’t use liqueurs that are creamy for best results.
Yield: ~ 8 cups


1. Boil ~ 4 cups water in a pot, or in a kettle.

2. Clip 2 stems of chocolate mint from your garden.

Nutrition Facts:

You may experiment with different types of tea, but always follow instructions for that particular type of tea for length of steeping time.
