Cool off with these refreshing, homemade green tea ice pops.
4teabags of green tea
1/2cupfresh spearmint, plus 10 small leaves
ice pop molds or 3-oz. paper cups
Prepare your molds. If using paper cups, place them on a sheet pan.
In a 2-quart pot, bring the water to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool for a few seconds, then drop in the teabags and 1/2 cup mint. Steep for 5 minutes, then remove the tea bags and stir in the honey until dissolved. Let cool.
When cooled completely, strain into a pitcher, pressing on the mint gently. Pour the tea mixture into the prepared molds, place a mint leaf in each, then freeze completely. If using paper cups, freeze for half an hour before inserting sticks.
When frozen, store in an airtight bag or container for up to a month.
While this recipe calls for plain green tea, you can use any other green tea or black tea as well.
