An Iced Herbal Tea- Meadow Tea



You are sitting on your front porch chatting with good friends while watching your kids play in the back yard as dusk moves in. The lightning bugs are just starting to come out, small hands try to grasp the little bugs and watch them glow. You reach for a glass iced tea. What kind of tea you might ask? Meadow Tea.

Meadow Tea what’s that? I first learned about this iced tea when reading a book about the Amish whom this tea is generally associated with. Each version differs a bit but the most common version seems to be mint. Generally Meadow Teas are extremely sweet; mint leaves are naturally sweet on their own so I have kept this version low in sugar.

Join me at The Greenbacks Gal to learn how to make this herbal iced tea.
