Urban Tea Gardens Green Tea Mojito is one of my favorite hot weather ice teas. The star is our delicious Moroccan Mint Green Tea. This tea is refreshing and is great after a meal. The mint helps with digestion and leaves your breath minty fresh.
Gather the goods:
6 cups spring or filtered water
3 level tablespoons of Urban Tea Gardens Moroccan Mint Green Tea
1-2 small limes washed & cut into sections
3-4 tablespoons sugar (your choice)
2 regular size pitchers (ones that can handle heat) or 8-10 cups
Mint for garnish
Boil your filtered water and let sit for 3-4 minutes to cool down. Green tea loves 190 degrees.
Next, add the Moroccan Mint to the water, (smell that beautiful stuff) and set a timer for 3 minutes.
When the tea is done steeping, strain into one of your pitchers and let the tea cool down for awhile. Take a deep breathe of this good stuff and connect to it for a moment.
In the mean time you can muddle your lime and sugar in the bottom of your second pitcher and let it sit. If you like lime use two or you can just use one for a lighter flavor.
When the tea is cool enough, add to your muddled mixture into the second pitcher. Fill the second pitcher to the top with ice and give it a good stir.
Grab your favorite ice tea glass and fill it with ice. Slowly pour the Moroccan Mint Green Tea Mojito mixture over the ice and enjoy. You can always add some mint for garnish.
You can always adult this drink by adding a splash of your favorite rum or vodka.
Making Iced Tea by the cup is easy. The general rule of thumb is to double the required amount of tea for steeping and follow the rest of the instructions on our labels . Let cool and add your sugar of choice. Slowly stir in 1.5 cups of ice and enjoy. You can add less tea or add more tea, but never, (did I say never), go over the steep time. Over steeping causes the bitterness in tea. Since teas require different steeping times, make sure to read the instruction for each tea and set your timers. This will ensure a cup you enjoy.
