I drink storebought bagged herbal tea made from nothing more than dried mint unsweetened almost every day lately, so I was expecting this fresh tea to be even better. It wasn't. I think perhaps there is something strange about the technique, but I don't know enough about herbal tea to be sure.

Very nice especially chilled. I would end to use more mint to make the tea much stronger as with the exact proportions it is quite subtle.

I made this as directed and served it over ice cubes- real chilled! In these terrible summer months, I'll be making this quite often. I personally found this bitter...I'd like it more sweet. So, I took about 1/2 cup of this in a glass and added 2 tsps. of sugar to it, stirred it well and added lots of ice cubes(5-6) to it and then had it. It's just rightly sweetened now and wonderfully refreshing!
