A refreshing ice tea is wonderful on a hot and sunny day. This home made ice tea recipe is a healthy alternative to commercial sweetened ice tea and is a little bit like an unsweetened “Arnold Palmer”. The refreshing lemon and mint complement the black tea flavor well.

The following recipe uses four ingredients: zest and slices of lemon, fresh mint leaves, loose leaf black tea and water. I used this Golden Tips organic Black Tea and Tea Beyond Teapot previously reviewed, but this would likely work with your favorite black tea.
I think a nice zester and grater is such a useful gadget to have in the kitchen. I use my zester to grate or zest citrus, hard cheeses like Parmesan, chocolate, ginger and more. My zester converted me from purchasing pre-grated Parmesan cheese to buying blocks and grating as needed.
The Chef’s Way Premium Grater and Zester fits nicely in the hands and has a comfortable non-slip rubberized handle. The Zester comes with a safety cover which helps protect the zester and hands while not in use. The zesting/grating blade is stainless steel and works very well. Just be careful not to grate your knuckles!
I highly recommend the Chef’s Way Premium Grater and Zester. I use this nearly every day and feel that freshly grated or zest ingredients improve the flavor my meals!
