Recipe: Pomegranate & Mint Iced Tea

Even though we’ve finally had some respite in Melbourne from the crazy heat we’d experienced over summer, iced tea has remained a staple in my fridge. The citrus iced tea I shared a little while back has been on high rotation, but when I found myself with a rather ripe pomegranate in my fruit bowl I decided to mix things up and try a pomegranate based version instead! Even better, the mint came from my little balcony – it’s growing things already!

I kept this iced tea more on the tart side as I really like it that way, but feel free to add more sugar (or a liquid sweetener if you prefer) if you’d like a sweeter tea.

Ingredients List

  • 6 black teabags
  • 5 cups boiling water
  • 2tbs sugar
  • Zest & juice of 2 lemons
  • Large handful of mint
  • Juice of 1 pomegranate
  • Additional lemon slices and mint for serving



  1. Place tea bags in a large jug or bowl and add the boiling water. Stir in the sugar until dissolved
  2. Add the lemon zest and mint leaves and leave to sit for 5 minutes
  3. Remove the tea bags then strain the tea into a serving jug. Leave to cool slightly
  4. Add the juice from the lemons and pomegranate and taste for sweetness – adjust to suit your needs!
  5. Leave to chill in the fridge then serve with sliced lemon and mint leaves
  6. Enjoy!

Pomegranate & Mint Iced Tea

I love the colour this goes thanks to the pomegranate juice! I’ve been stocking up on pomegranates at my local Turkish grocer so I can keep a supply of this in my fridge, so tart and delicious!

Are you an iced-tea fan? What flavour should I try next?
