I LIKE it! Spicy though I cut down the cayenne somewhat (also because I am nursing). I used a red raspberry leaf tea bag for health reasons and to avoid a caffeine headache. I made this much healthier by sweetening with less raw honey after it had cooled down a bit. Since red raspberry leaf tea takes about 15 minutes to steep I added the cinnamon stick as well and then poured the mixture over a whole glass of ice to dilute after it was steeped in order to drink it immediately. I might make it again. Made for PAC Spring 12.

Loved the cayenne in it!If I'll ever own a coffe shop I'll definetely put this on the menu.It's one of those things that people would want to get the recipe. I have no idea what kind of mint I've used,but it was mint for sure.Thanks for this great tea!

What a wonderful treat! Delicious blend of flavors. I used a strong peppermint from the garden. I love cayenne pepper and eyeballed the amount, probably using a little more than the 1/4 tsp asked due to perrsonal preference. I also used artificial sweetener to make it sugar free as personal preference. I will be drinking this frequently throughout the fall, and well into winter, although I will be trying it with dried mint once the garden is done.

Oh yum! I make mint ice tea often, but loved adding the lemon too. Great tea! Made in appreciation of all the hard work you put into PAC! :lol:

VERY NICE! I boiled my water in a pyrex in the microwave, then added a decaf tea bag, fresh mint sprigs and the cinnamon stick. I then strained it but put the cinnamon stick back in the liquid. I felt this had the right sweetness and a very nice minty flavor. I also enjoyed the spicyness from the cayenne...it reminded me of the zip you get from strong ginger. Yum, I'll be making this again!

WOW, this is good! Sadly I had to use dried mint as fresh simply isn't available yet. I made single serving and that gave me 1 1/2 cups of the cup I used. The sweetening seems like a lot, I used 2 tsp's of Splenda and that was just right for me. Love the cinnamon, lemon, mint and cayenne mix. I had my cup hot today as it's turned very cool again but I know this would be fabulous chilled. Thanks BK for another superior drink.

Yummy! I love this tea. I first tried it 2 days ago, and I have had it every morning since.After the first time, I did leave out the cinnamon though,it was good with it, but I just prefer it without.I love the "Zip" from the mint, and the "Zing" from the cayenne!It's a perfect morning "pep me up". Thanks for sharing this baby Kato!
