Oh I did so enjoy this. Coming from a land that drinks a lot of tea I was a bit unsure about placing the sugar in at Step 2. As there is only me drinking tea in the house I halved the recipe. I am suffering from a severe cold at the moment and the tea gave me a good lift. I will certainly keep making it and I am sure it would work well in summer as a cold tea. Thanks Sharon

I never thought mint and green tea would go together so well. I decreased the recipe to 2 cups. All the benefits of green tea plus the ones from mint, I will have this often :) Thank you Sharon! Made for Swizzle Chick and ZWT6.

Although I follow the organic green tea I have's directions by waiting 1 minute before pouring the water over the tea bags and then steeping just 3 minutes this is good. Made for ZWT6 NA*ME region for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.
