      I made this as written except that I used decaff tea bags and Splenda, and we really liked it. I would like to share a variation that I used in the next batch when making it for my diabetic son. I steeped the teas mint leaves and orange zest as specified and did not add any sweetener. When it was cool, I mixed it in the glass with half tea mixture and half diet grapefruit soda pop (Loblaws PC brand). This gave the grapefruit twist and sweetener at the same time, as well as keeping the calories lower, and providing a little sparkle. I will be making this tea all summer, probably using both variations.
