Licorice Mint Iced Tea

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by SaraStar

An easy, refreshing drink for any time. As written, the recipe is very sweet. I prefer my tea less sweet, so I usually decrease the amount of honey used. Cook time does not include cooling time.

I love the taste of licorice root, and really enjoyed this tea. I diluted the mix a little. Thanks so much for the recipe!
