Expert Tips

For a special touch, add a few drops of rum.

Sure, it’s easy to find dry mint or lemon infusions at the supermarket. But it’s always more gratifying to prepare this recipe the traditional way. The key is to enjoy this tea cold and even with a tasty sandwich in hand.

Directions

  • 1 In a tea pot or deep pot, bring water to a boil.
  • 2 Peel the lemon, but try to remove only the outermost layer or zest.
  • 3 Add the zest, mint leaves and tea bags to the boiling water.
  • 4 Boil for 2 more minutes and add sugar or honey (optional.)
  • 5 Let it cool and serve over ice and lemon wedges.
