I almost forgot to review this! I made it at about mid-morning and it just hit the spot perfectly. I very recently picked up a good supple of mint for our ZWT9 trip to Morocco/Tunisia. I used a bit of Splenda and fully enjoyed Morocco's national beverage.
Mine was super minty because I use my David's Tea North African Mint green tea along with the mint leave! I knew I had nice breath after that! Made for ZWT 9.
Yum, I love mint tea and enjoyed it with the green tea. I drank this warm, then added ice to have cold later. Thanks! Made for ZWT 2013.
