      This was a great change from the tea made in the coffee maker. A bit less tea tartness and the hint of mint was nice.

      This is a lovely idea for iced tea. I must admit I was concerned about whether it would work in the partial sunshine we had today in England. But it did! I added a little Splenda after brewing as my other half likes it sweet! Thanks for a keeper! Made for Please Review My Recipe.

      This was so refreshing!! Had this on a hot humid day and it did the trick!! Have a large mint patch in my backyard - so used a couple of sprigs - and loved it in this iced tea!! Thanks Lainey! :)
