fresh mint leaves
Not bad. I'm wanting a bit more taste--either from the lemon or tea. It tastes a bit like flavored water, so I think I'd add a tea bag or two next time. It also isn't that minty, but 2 bunches of mint is a vague measurement. Not sure what the recipe submitter really meant, so I looked it up. A small bunch is about .5 oz (which is what I used), a larger bunch is 1 oz. Perhaps what was meant was a large bunch? At any rate, I made the Mint Ice Cubes on here (recipe by Skuba) and added it to my glass of tea. Although it took them a while to melt, once they did, it is a mint explosion! thanks for the recipe.
followed the recipes, then brewed it in the fridge- (much safer that way) added some extra lemon too, yum!
I used a mild basil variety and orange mint mixture. BTW, a "BUNCH" is equal to a cup and a half. I looked it up once when using cilantro, and was glad I did!
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 caffein and taste. It is sooo good! Im sipping some right now! Thanks for sharing! :)
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 light, refreshing drink.
Very good and refreshing for a hot summer day! I'll be making this again.
