Minted Iced Tea

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Bergy

Very refreshing for those hot days ahead - Note no sugar in this drink, with the mint you just don't need it. I know tho that some of you seeties will want to add sugar! You may want to dilute the tea ever further-it's up to you and how you like your tea

Hey Bergy, made this minted tea last night and just tasted it now, very very good!!! The first use of the mint I planted, (it's growing like a weed, just as everyone said it would), very refreshing, will be making it alternately with your cold coffee all summer. No sugar is great and much better for us!! Thanks for posting.
