Cool and refreshing Mint Iced Tea!
On a hot day this drink is quite refreshing and simple to make. Our family rarely has soda in the house. One reason is that it's too expensive and another is the kids put enough sugar on their cereal so the last thing they need is more. Instead, I invest in boxes of Herbal Tea. Around Spring, when everyone is working and playing outside, I usually start making pitchers of Mint Tea. In a large pitcher, add about 4 tea bags of Bigelow Mint Medley and set it out in the sun. If it's not warm enough, try filling the pitcher with warm water and let it rest on your counter for about 1 hour before refrigerating. The tea is a blend of Spearmint and Peppermint, is all natural and Caffeine free. We usually do not add any Sugar although a dollop of Honey is quite tasty. The cool feeling of this tea is enough to quench any thirst!
