Very refreshing. I subbed 1/4 cup agave nectar for the sugar. As is, the flavor was great, but I am going to try it with the amounts of lemon juice and cherry juice reversed next time for a mor pronounced cherry flavor. Great use for the fresh mint in my garden.

I did not use as much sugar as I dont like things too sweet, it was a delicious cooling drink on a hot, hot day - thanks for posting.

This is great! I only have a small pitcher at home so I reduced some things. I boiled 3 packets of green tea and the mint leaves in 1.5 cups of water. I dissolved the sugar in 1 cup of water (I only used 1/2 cup of sugar because I don't like my tea too sweet). I used the same measurements for the cherry juice and lemon juice --- great!! Thisll definitely be in my rotation for homemade drinks.
