Southern Rosemint Iced Tea

Along with Strawberry Lemonade and Mango Slushies, Rosemint Iced Tea is a refreshing contributor to the New Orleans Jazz Fest experience. It’s a tasty addition to the South’s long list of sweet iced teas. MHT’s Creative Director, Jessie, has found memories of sipping this tea at Jazz Fest watching artists like Bonnie Rait, Lauren Hill, and Neil Young take the stage.

Southern Rosemint Tea

This amazingly refreshing iced tea is perfect for hot days. The trick that separates Rosemint tea from other sweet Southern iced teas lies in the use of unfiltered Louisiana honey. Regular honey works perfectly fine here as well.
