This was fresh and delicious! The color was such a lovely golden; really made it appetizing. I changed the recipe a bit by basically making 1/3 of the batch. I used 1 cup of mint, 2 cups of water, 1 teabag (which I took out after the 3 minutes to prevent bitterness) and NO sugar. Instead, I added a teaspoon of honey to each teacup (made 4 servings, just like recipe said) and that was plenty sweet and flavorful to me. I can't wait to serve this to friends! Thanks!
Mr JB loves his Sweet Tea, and says that tea without sugar is "unfulfilled". Unfortunately, he can't have black tea or a lot of sugar anymore. This recipe works well for him as iced tea, provided I substitute a tablespoon of honey for all that sugar. Gives it just enough sweet to notice. Will have to increase my mint crop to meet demand.
Very good! Made for ZWT3.
Wonderful tea that was simply lovely with Tunisian Farka (Breakfast Pasta from North Africa) for this morning's breakfast. Aside from using Splenda to sweeten it after it was made I just followed the directions and was rewarded with a beautifully aromatic and rich mint taste. I can't think of a single thing to improve it so this has to be 5 stars.
Reviewed for ZWT3. Excellent tea, easy to make and quite authentic. I'm married to a North African so we have a lot of mint tea in our house and this recipe got the thumbs up! Than You :)
This is a very good and flavorful tea. I think next time I make it I will not let it steep as long. I don't like my tea very strong and this was a little stronger than I normally drink. The mint was a great touch to this drink.
