SUMMER HONEY MINT ICED TEA



What to do with all that wild mint that takes over the garden...some honey mint tea! So cool and refreshing. Just bring a big pot of water to just under a boil. Add a whole bunch of fresh mint leaves, some black tea bags, plenty of honey and fresh squeezed lemon juice to taste and steep the tea bags for 5 minutes and the mint for a bit longer. Strain and serve with ice and a garnish of mint.

Looks refresing. As a native son of the South (and thus iced tea expert), I say, "Well done.' :)

I am growing mint so I can do this recipe easily. I like that it is sweetened with honey. Very nice.
