Refreshing Mint and Lemon Infused Linden Tea on Ice

Try a refreshing herbal twist to your summer iced tea. This cold Linden tea, infused with mint and lemon and served on ice is a delicious and pretty beverage for the summer.

In recent weeks we’ve been picking our own Linden tree flowers and leaves and drying them. You can easily dry your own Linden tree flowers collected from your own neighbourhood.

In addition to making a delicious non-caffeinated hot tea, we love it as iced tea! It’s a nice alternative to traditional iced tea which is usually made from caffeinated teas such as orange pekoe. With it’s anti-anxiety properties, Linden tea is suggested as a good before-bed tea. Moreover, its beautiful red colour makes it a pretty beverage on your dinner table! Here’s a refreshing and easy iced tea recipe to enjoy.

Looks so refreshing! That would be a great drink for me right now while I am here visiting the Jersey Shore and fighting off a cold. I just don't want to do hot tea in the summer. I wonder if this would help...It's great co-hosting the #HomeMattersParty with you!
