Mojito Mint Iced Tea & Pure Via Giveaway

Another holiday to report — did you know June is National Iced Tea Month! Oh how I love to sun brew a big container of tea and flavor it with ginger and lemon – or sometimes I’ll mix my pitcher of refreshment with a fruit puree. Or, how about a tall glass of Mojito Mint Iced Tea, that’s what I have for you today! Sit back on the porch and enjoy, y’all!

 Mojito Mint Iced Tea Recipe

  •  2 quarts water
  • 4 – 6 black tea bags (depending on strength preference)
  • 2 limes
  • 1 bunch of mint
  • Liquid stevia to taste

Directions: Pour water into a large glass container with lid. Add tea bags and hang tags over rim. Zest limes into tea container, taking care not to zest bitter white pith. Reserve limes, for use later. Massage and twist mint with hands to activate oils; immerse into container. Top with lid and set in sunny part of yard for 4 – 5 hours. Take tea bags out of jar and pour tea through strainer to remove zest and mint leaves. Squeeze flesh of zested limes into tea, add liquid stevia to taste – -stir and enjoy!

Remain calm, this is just a Stevia plant!

I’ll be first to come clean that I have a major sweet tooth and can’t drink my iced tea plain – yet that sweet tea that’s served down here in the south is way to sugary. My compromise is to use stevia, a natural and zero-calorie extract derived from the leaves of the Stevia plant. I still get the satisfaction of “sweet” without the calories, carbs or that sickly saccharine taste that comes with many other sugar substitutes.

I’ve tried many brands of stevia and I really like Pure Via®, the company has a wide range of products including non-GMO stevia packets that can be sprinkled in beverages and used in recipes along with liquid stevia that comes in a handy little squirt bottle that fits in my purse – I love to sweeten my on-the-go coffees and smoothies with the vanilla – the sweetness of stevia is very concentrated, so just a few drops will do ya!

  1. I am not a stevia fan, but your recipe enticed me to click on the link. I LOVE mint virgin mojitos, so am sure I’d love the iced tea version, though I’ll skip the sweetener. I have wild mint that grows outside.

    • I’m that way about Starbuck’s chai latte . . I replicate it at home and it’s probably BETTER tasting and BETTER for me . . . . but why does it seem so much BETTER at starbucks. Oh, wait, I know . . . . someone’s doing it for me 😉

  2. Mojitos I can drink all day……Woot Woot!!! Great recipe, thanks for sharing. It sounds wonderfully refreshing.

  3. That tea looks delicious! I keep meaning to make iced tea and keep forgetting. I love all types of tea,so I’ll definitely have to try this. Also plan on making my own iced coffee for the summer :)
