Nectarine Mint Green Iced Tea

I love unsweetened ice tea. Many times grocery stores will only offer unflavored unsweetened ice tea. While it’s delicious, there are times that I want something different.

This recipe combines making basic ice tea and infusing water with fruit and herbs which creates a refreshing drink.

I’ve included adding sugar or honey in the directions. If you are like me or on the Whole30, you can certainly omit the sugar or honey.
