  1. Pour the water into a large glass container with a lid. Stir in honey until dissolved.
  2. Zest the lemon, being careful not to include any white pith, and juice the lemon. Combine the zest and juice with the honey water mixture.
  3. Hold a bunch of mint in one hand; use your other hand to twist and squeeze the leaves, slightly bruising them to release their fragrance and oils. Immerse the bunches in the water mixture. Cover the container and place in direct sunlight for two hours. Remove the mint leaves, shake, and serve over ice in tall glasses, garnished with a mint sprig.

This was easy and a nice way to use my mint plant. I found it very refreshing over some ice. Another person thought it maybe didn't have a strong enough flavor, but I thought it worked well as a...

YUMMM!!! I found your recipe this morning and just happen to have a huge bunch of mint growing nicely in my green house. I made the tea, then added one lipton regular tea bag to it for a bit of ...

Very good and refreshing for a hot summer day! I'll be making this again.

I am wondering if they forgot to mention the tea bags! I put in the usual 10 bags into my sun tea container and then added the ingredients. Very yummy!

This is an old Amish recipe for iced tea. They call it Meadow tea. I rustic camp near several Amish families in Ontario, Canada. The mint they are referring to in the recipe is what they use ...
