Making Mint Tea

Every so often a product you have come to rely on is no longer available for purchase. We've had this problem in the states as well. Recently, we've discovered two different discontinuations on items we had used frequently. We can no longer find lemon juice (easy enough, just buy real lemons and squeeze the juice out of them) and we also can't get the packets of drink mix we liked. Solving this took a bit more thought. Then I, Laura, thought about how I used to make mint tea with the fresh leaves we grew at our home in America, and how ice tea makers use tea bags to make ice tea, and why couldn't I combine those two methods to make ice mint tea?

Step 1, in a two liter container, add a small amount of water, and approximately a cup of sugar.

Step 2, add 8 mint tea bags to a pan of boiling water and steep for about 5 minutes. Remove tea bags.

Step 3, pour concentrated tea into 2 liter bottle , shake well, and then fill bottle with water.
Continue to shake until sugar is dissolved.
Refrigerate, and shake before serving.
