  • Tea Base:
    • 4 cups boiling water
    • 4 green tea bags (or 3 tablespoons loose leaf green tea)
    • 12 sprigs fresh mint
  • Sweeteners: (to taste)
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup honey (or agave nectar)
  • Citrusy Punch:
    • 1 cup fresh orange juice
    • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
    • 5 cups cold water
  • Garnish: (optional)
    • Fresh mint sprigs
    • Orange slices
    • Lemon slices


  1. Steep the Tea: Bring the 4 cups of water to a boil. Pour the boiling water over your green tea bags or loose leaf tea and fresh mint sprigs in a large pitcher. Let it steep for 8-10 minutes, allowing the flavors to infuse.
  2. Sweeten to Taste: Once steeped, remove the tea bags or loose leaf tea and mint sprigs. While the tea is still warm, stir in your preferred sweetener, be it granulated sugar or honey, until it dissolves completely.
  3. Add the Zing: Pour in the fresh orange juice and lemon juice. Give it a good stir to combine all the flavors.
  4. Chill Out: Add the 5 cups of cold water to dilute the tea slightly. Refrigerate the punch for at least 2 hours, or until thoroughly chilled.
  5. Serve and Impress! Pour your refreshing Mint Tea Punch over ice cubes in glasses. Garnish with fresh mint sprigs, orange slices, and lemon slices for an extra touch of summer flair.


  • For a stronger mint flavor, you can muddle a few mint sprigs before adding them to the hot water for steeping.
  • If you prefer a less sweet punch, start with half the amount of sweetener and adjust to your taste.
  • You can substitute other citrus juices like grapefruit or lime juice for some variation.
  • For a fun twist, add a cup of sparkling water or club soda to the chilled punch before serving for a touch of fizz.

This Mint Tea Punch is a perfect way to cool down and enjoy the company of friends and family on a hot summer day. So brew a batch, gather your loved ones, and raise a glass to the refreshing taste of summer!
