On a hot day, nothing refreshes like a glass of iced tea, but on a cold day, there’s something warming and soothing about a mug of hot tea. Lucky for you, this Lemon Mint Tea can satisfy both those expectations! It’s super simple to make in just a few minutes, and it’s flavored with peppermint tea, a cinnamon stick, lemon juice and a bit of sugar. It’s DELICIOUS!

If you want to drink it hot, it can be ready after steeping 5 minutes, and if you want it cold, you will need to let it cool down before pouring it over ice. Other than that, it’s EASY PEASY, and I know you’re going to love it! I found the recipe years ago in an old cookbook I have, and finally got around to taking photos for my blog. Here’s how to make lemon mint tea:

How To Make The Tea

The recipe as written will make 1 serving, but can EASILY be doubled, tripled, etc. (only 1 cinnamon stick needed for up to 10 servings). To make the tea, you will need to have a lemon, a peppermint tea bag, cinnamon stick and granulated sugar. My photos below will show how to make ONE serving.

One peppermint tea bag, lemon, sugar and a cinnamon stick are used to make this tea.

Place the tea bag and the cinnamon stick in a small saucepan. Pour one cup of boiling water over them, then immediately put a lid on the pan. Let the tea steep (covered) for 5 minutes. Once it has fully steeped, remove the tea bag and cinnamon stick.

Add 1 Tablespoon of granulated sugar and 1 Tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice to the hot tea. Stir well, until the sugar has had a chance to fully dissolve. Now the tea is done!

Granulated sugar and fresh lemon juice are added to the brewed mint tea.

Serving Lemon Mint Tea HOT

If you want to enjoy the tea HOT, simply pour the hot beverage into a mug once the sugar has dissolved. You can garnish the mug of lemon mint tea with a fresh sprig of mint and a lemon wedge, if desired. That is completely optional, but sure makes that mug of hot tea look good!

Lemon Mint Tea Served COLD

If you prefer your tea COLD, let the tea first cool to room temperature. Once cooled, fill a glass with ice cubes, and pour the tea into the glass. NOTE: One reason you shouldn’t pour HOT tea over ice is because it could possibly cause the glass to crack. The other reason is that the HOT tea will melt the ice cubes faster which waters down the tea considerably.
