Modified this recipe to make it lighter and more natural. i used only 1/3 cup of sugar and squeezed in two lemons instead of lemonade mix. Chopped the mint instead of crushed and let it float around the ice cubes. it's really light and refreshing!

I made this the exact way. This was too mint, and it needed to be dilouted badly

Fabulous. I used this recipe as a basic idea for what I wanted. I didn't use regular tea. Instead, I used flavored (black cherry or raspberry) caffeine free tea so the kiddos could have some. I boiled 8 bags in 2 quarts of water (approximately). Instead of adding water and juice concentrate I added a bottle of Simply Lemonade. I only added 1/2 cup sugar to mellow the tartness. Adding the fresh mint the night before was the winning touch. EVERYONE loved it. Even the people who don't drink tea.

I love this stuff. I also made it with regular brewed tea, and I used lemonade powder instead of frozen concentrate. So refreshing on these ridiculously hot summer days. Thanks!

This tea was such a hit at a baby shower! I made real iced tea the night before and chilled it. I then added the lemonade concentrate and water. I did not crush the mint leaves. I let them float in the to of the punch bowl. I would only sugest to dilute it a tad bit more with water. Or just taste before serbing. I also froze mint leaves in ice cubes the night before. It was a very refreshing drink on a hot day in Louisiana.

My husband loved this drink. He told me I could make it everyday. I will experiment with the amount of sugar in the future. I think you could use half as much sugar and it would still taste good.

I loved this refreshing tea. It's great in the summer time with fresh mint from the garden. The hubby gave it a thumbs up and we even added a little vodka to it to make it an adult only drink!

My family loves it! Mint and all. If all you have is sweet instant tea, just don't add sugar. It is still good.
