    Bev's Note:

    If you enjoy having a soothing, refreshing glass of iced tea in the summertime, I hope you will try my version of sweet mint tea. I grew up drinking mint tea and still enjoy it so very much today. If you don't care for sugar in your tea, just leave it out, it will still be just as satisfying.

      Invigorating mint and freshly brewed tea go together like peanut butter and jelly...truly a match made in heaven. We too, grew up drinking this beverage...our friends grew mint in their yard and we'd eagerly pick some on each visit, then hurry home to prepare our tea. I enjoy it sweetened and minus the lemon, although a slice perched on the rim of the glass is always eye-appealing. There are recipes with alternative methods such as using peppermint flavored tea, but fresh mint is truly the way to go. If you love iced tea, don't miss this one!!

      This is another fabulous "Bev" recipe! Made this for our 4th of July cookout and we loved it! It is so refreshing and the mint added so much. Used a little less than a cup of Splenda for the sweetening, otherwise made as directed. Thank you so much, Bev for sharing all your wonderful recipes!

      Excellent recipe, Bev! My grandmother used to make something similar while I was growing up, and waking up this morning to an already 80-plus degree day, I found myself craving some. I'll use this recipe all summer. Thanks!
