How much sugar is in your iced tea?

Mint Iced Tea

There is nothing quite as refreshing as an ice cold iced-tea drink. However, many of the store bought brands contain large amounts of added sugar.

So how much sugar is in the iced tea you are drinking?

One of the most common iced tea brands has up to eight teaspoons of added sugar! Eek.

So, ditch the sugar and make your own. This recipe for mint mayhem iced tea is a flavour hit. This blend will awaken the should from within with its full glory mint-iness. It will also helps to clear a foggy head.

Mint Mayhem Iced Tea


  • 8 cups boiling water
  • 4 peppermint tea bags

  2. Allow it to steep for around 10 minutes.
