This is my new favorite way to make iced tea.
It begins by planting some mint by my back door.
My daughter-in-law cautioned me to keep it in a pot.
It also involves a handful of cloves.
This jar holds 1/2 gallon. I put 8 regular tea bags or 3 family-sized bags in the jar,
along with a sprig of mint, and a handful of cloves.
Lipton is not my favorite tea, but I found some in my cupboard
and one of my life’s mottos is Use It Up!
Pour a quart of boiling water into jar. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
It will look as dark as coffee.
Remove mint and tea bags (I snag the cloves when I’m drinking the tea.)
Sweeten to your taste (1/4 cup sugar seems perfect to me).
Fill the jar with ice or water, chill, and drink.
Optional: add lemon wedges
