One of summer’s standard beverages is sweet iced tea, especially in the South. My grandmother used to add mint to her ice tea – it’s so refreshing!
Brew 12 cups of water and 6 individual (not family size) tea bags. To the hot tea add 6-8 mint leaves. Stir and let it sit about 5 minutes. Then add 1-1/4 cup sugar, juice of 1 orange and 1-1/2 tablespoon lemon juice or 1/2 lemon. This is especially good if you chill your glasses. Remove the mint leaves before you refrigerate.
