Plantation Iced Tea

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Donna Matthews

When I was a kid in Ohio, my mother kept mint growing under a dripping hose bib. On those icky, sticky, hot and humid summer days, I fondly remember cold glasses of this refreshing iced tea with its hint of mint, orange and lemon juices.

I had a bunch of limes and used those instead of lemon and this iced tea is just delicious and so refreshing. I like that the tea flavours are still strong, and it's nice and citrusy while not being too sweet. The mint is a nice touch. This is perfect for the hot weather outside. Thanks!
