Peppermint Iced Tea

1 February 19, 2009 - Archive

Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ (YLTG) peppermint essential oil comes from the most potent plants around the globe and is tested to ensure proper levels of menthol and menthone are in every bottle.

But there’s more to YLTG peppermint than just finding the best plants. The secret is in expert harvesting practices. Peppermint is harvested when the field’s overall appearance goes from light to dark green. The growers make sure the plant has just started to bloom before the peppermint is cut, and then water is carefully measured prior to distillation to ensure the most potent constituents are steam-extracted.

Enjoy this fun recipe as a great way to start incorporating peppermint essential oil in to your everyday life!

Peppermint Iced Tea

4 decaffeinated green tea bags
1/4 c. Young Living Blue Agave
3 drops Young Living peppermint essential oil
3 limes

In the bottom of a 64-ounce pitcher, pour agave and peppermint essential oil. Pour hot water over top and stir. Add tea bags and steep until it has a dark caramel color. Quarter limes. Fill serving glasses with ice and squeeze one lime slice in each glass. Pour tea over ice and garnish with a sprig of mint and serve.

    This recipe sounds wonderful and I will try it. I usually put a drop or two in my morning water everyday and when it is hot out I sip it all day. Thank you for your blog.

    I use peppermint in my water everyday, can’t even drink it anymore without it. This idea of adding to tea sounds amazing. In AZ I made a lot of SUN TEA, which we make outside in a Gallon jug, Then bring in add ice and put in refrig. I will now be adding Peppermint and the limes. It sounds so refreshing and such a great alternative to plain old water…. 🙂

    I always carry a 5ml bottle of peppermint oil in my purse. Whenever i eat out i order iced tea and add a drop or two of the oil and stir. No need for sweetner. It’s become my favorite cold beverage. Be careful tho, it will crack those plastic tops for paper drink cups, and NEVER put it in styrofoam.

  • I will try today. We are enjoying some hot weather here in Florida. Thanks for the recipe.
