This was excellent! I don't take sweetener in my tea so the tea has to have a good flavor for me to enjoy it. The flavor in this was delightfully minty with just enough lemon to brighten it without being sour. I know I will make this time and again, and put my garden mint to great use! Made for Australia/NZ recipe swap for June. Thanks for sharing, CJ! ~Sue
