This time of year this is one of my favorite things to drink with a meal. Sadly, I can only get this at home. I put a small amount of mint extract, maybe 1/8 tsp. in a 16 oz glass of sweetened iced tea. You can also use one mint teat bag in a gallon of tea. Tasty stuff in my book. Anybody else do this?
BTW, it seemed to be an "off topic" topic. Didn't really fit anywhere else.

We make a lot of suntea all summer and add chocolate mint to it. Gives it a great taste. Just chop it up and toss it in a tea ball with the other bags and your good to go.

I drank gallons of iced mint tea in North Africa, (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia), when I was there in the early 80's.

But there they would make the tea with boiling water, and bring sprigs of fresh mint and a jug full of ice cubes.

You would receive a glass full of ice cubes, a sprig of mint would be rubbed hard to release the mint oil, and put in the glass, the cooling tea would be poured into the jug with the ice and then from that jug to your glass, cubed sugar was offered, I found a couple of cubes gave me the right taste.

In temperatures up to 114 in the shade, I would be using it from dawn to dusk to keep hydrated.

Well made mint Iced Tea is great. It's easy to screw up though.

Had it and liked it. Best tea I've ever had was hot honeysuckle tea at a restaurant in Atlanta, but they went out of business and I've never tried to make it myself (the bottom of the teapot was full of honeysuckle flowers, so this wasn't some extract deal).

I enjoy mint tea, or sweet tea, or just about any cold beverage in the summer. Cool

BTW, Sun Tea for home use is just fine (I guess, I don't make it).

Refrigerate it promptly, and use it immediately.

It is prone to bacteria growth, so is not approved for public sale.
