3 cups of boiled water
3 cups of sugar
3 family size tea bags (I used Lipton, but any brand/flavor will do)
1 handful fresh mint leaves
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
Dissolve sugar in the boiled water then steep the tea and mint leaves for 15 minutes or so. If you prefer stronger tea (like my hubby) then try steeping overnight. Remove the tea and mint leaves. Add lemon juice and cold water (enough to fill the pitcher). I like to let mine refrigerate a few hours. Enjoy!
