This was so yummy. I used my own fresh mint. The fruit juice, tea and mint flavor combinations made for a cool, refreshing taste sensation. Sure helped us keep cool in the heat. Thanks Nurse Di.

Served this at our 4th cook-out. Oh so refreshing and cool. Really helped us beat the heat. The mint/citrus flavor was to die for. I doubled the recipe. Great summer refresher. Thanks NurseDi.

I am going to try this again before I rate it. I think the reason no one liked it was because I didn't follow the directions as written. I used limeade instead of lemonade and way more mint than the recipe calls for. The color of the drink was also off. I think the color was because of the green and orange of the juices. I also froze a little mint in ice cubes. When the ice melted, the mint "bloomed" in the glass. This freaked people out. 6/9/10 I tried this again. I used Bigelow Mint Medley Herb Tea instead of fresh mint but everything else was according to recipe. It was too sweet and the color was still not to my liking.

I had a similar tea in a restaurant and really wanted to make it at home, thanks for the great recipe! I ended up making a 2nd batch of just the tea & mint, omitting the sugar and adding it because the original recipe was too sweet for me. Next time I will omit the sugar. Otherwise awesome recipe. I even bought a mint plant so I can make it all the time!

This was wonderful! I've never made cold tea before and since my garden is overflowing with mint thought this would be a neat recipe to try. Will definately make again. Thanks!

Oh MY Goodness I was just looking for my lost recipe of this very mint tea, and gave up to go play on the internet and their it was! This is the best mint tea I have ever had. it's especially cooling on a hot summer day! Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I thought I had lost it forever. Your a saint!

Very refreshing drink! I used green tea and had to make a double batch since it went so quick! I agree with another user, I did not have to add any sugar at all since it was sweet enough from the lemonade and pineapple juice. Thanks!

Loved the citrus and mint combination! The tea was very refreshing. I added lots of ice cubes to dilute a bit, since it was sweeter than I was expecting. Next time I will omit the sugar -the pineapple sweetened it enough for me. Wonderful flavor though-I'll be making more as soon as this pitcher is gone! Thanks!
