      Ya know, I have to admit, better than my boxed wine. Made for Fall PAC 2011.

      This a very refreshing glass of iced tea!! I prefer it without the lemon juice. The subtle hint of mint (mine was spearmint) really seems to "awaken your senses". Thank you so much!

      I am fully addicted! I must have made this at least 5 times already and there is no end in site. Every year I think "What to do with all of this mint?" Now I feel like I need to plant more! I use either Spearmint or Peppermint, or a combo of both, whichever is more abundant when I go to pick. This is by far the most refreshing iced tea I have ever had. I made it exactly as written the first time, second time no lemon and used Splenda. I made 1 gallon with 1 cup of Splenda added. I used either my coffee pot or my iced tea maker whichever was more convenient at the time and steeped the bags and mint right in the pot. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I hope to have enough mint to freeze in icecubes so I can enjoy this year round.
