Iced Peppermint Green Tea

I got inspired to make this tea from reading an article in Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

It's really simple.  Just buy some peppermint tea bags from your grocer.  If you choose to use loose leaves, use a strainer. 

I used the Lipton Green Peppermint tea.  Use four teabags and steap in a pot of boiling hot water or a tea kettle for about ten minutes or so to allow for the peppermint to infuse the water.

Remove teabags and pour into a pitcher for serving.  Add sugar to taste (I used 3/4 c of raw sugar to a two quart pitcher.) Fill pitcher with ice cubes and stir to dissolve sugar.  Serve in a glass and garnish with mint leaves.  Enjoy
