Iced raspberry mint green tea is a simple and fruit-flavored iced green tea recipe with the perfect hint of mint. Easy and health-conscious!
I'm choosing to ignore the fact that the schools are back in session and that a few too many pumpkin-flavored things are creeping up in stores lately and keep my focus solely on summer.
It's most definitely summer in temperature and humidity here...and I mean, it will still be legit summer by the book for the next month-plus. I'm not even going to mention the word 'fall' for the next few weeks.
Iced tea is one of those drinks that I enjoy sipping on all year round (including the next season-that-will-not-be-named), but especially love getting creative with once the warm weather hits.
You have several different base teas, all kinds of fruit flavors, and varying degrees of sweetness to choose from to customize your glass of iced tea just how you like it. Who doesn't like options like that?
This is our third summer in the south and I swear each year gets hotter and more humid. Now that we're homeowners I've found that I spend a whole lot more time outside, from gardening to grilling to spray painting ALL the thrift store picture frames/curtain rods/fixtures I can get my hands on.
When I come back inside I'm pretty much making a beeline for the fridge with my sights set on a big glass of iced tea. It TOTALLY hits the spot when it comes to cooling me down and is a health-conscious summer sipper I welcome into my daily routine.
Easy fruit iced tea
I love having lemon ginger iced green tea in the fridge, but that recipe is more involved (you need to make simple syrup ahead of time) and has a wonderfully honeyed sweetness. This iced raspberry mint green tea however just might be my current favorite and it's SO, so easy to make.
Bigelow Tea Red Raspberry herbal tea and Green Tea with Mint are brewed together for an iced green tea that features bold raspberry flavor with a hint of mint (not overpowering). I use an equal number of tea bags of each for a perfectly balanced blend.
To take things up a notch I muddled raspberries and fresh mint leaves on the bottom of my glass before adding ice and the iced mint raspberry green tea. Love this easy burst of flavor! With all that goodness going on I didn't even need to add sweetener, making this iced green tea recipe a healthy refresher for summer. And you know...anytime. 😉

- The bold fruitiness of the raspberry tea combined with the mint green tea totally provided enough flavor that I didn't find any sweetener needed. However if you're a fan of sweet(er) tea, feel free to add you preferred sweetener here.
Iced Raspberry Mint Green Tea
- 3 Bigelow Red Raspberry tea bags
- 3 Bigelow Green Tea with Mint tea bags
- 4 cups water divided
- Raspberries for serving
- Mint leaves for serving
To prepare the iced tea:
- Place the six tea bags in a heat-safe bowl or container. Bring 1 cup of water to a boil, and then pour over tea bags. Let steep for 10 or so minutes.
- Once steeped, remove tea bags and pour in 3 cups of cold water. Chill until ready to serve.
- Add several raspberries and fresh mint leaves to the bottom of a sturdy glass. Using a muddler or a wooden spoon, press down on the raspberries/mint leaves and lightly twist. The raspberries will burst slightly and the mint leaves will become even more fragrant.
- Add ice and pour tea over top. Garnish with extra raspberries and mint leaves if you like.

Thanks, Heather! I got them from HomeGoods. 🙂
Prettiest tea ever and so, so perfect for the ridiculously hot weather we're getting here in New England!
Thanks Sues! That hot weather is brutal!! All the iced tea please!
My kids are already back in school and it's crazy! It's still summer for me, though, and I'm loving the sound of this tea! The color is gorgeous, too, and I love those cute glasses. 🙂
Thanks Marcie! Iced tea to the rescue. 🙂

That iced tea looks heavenly! It's also the perfect drink for those hot and humid days you're talking about. I live in the Northeast and we've had quite a few days like that this week and your drink needs to find it's way into my fridge. Thank you for sharing! 🙂 #client
