I love mint tea, so this was a no brainer that I would like this. The addition of the orange and lemon and then chilling just brought in a whole other level of flavor and refreshment. All in the family enjoyed it. Thank you Lazyme for sharing!

This was wonderful and refreshing. The flavors of the orange, lemon, and mint really shone through. I actually used eight green teabags with 6 cups of water and half a cup of sugar since I don’t really care for sweet tea . I agree that this would be good warmed in the winter months as well .

Great tea! Love adding mint to the tea bags when brewing a pitcher and always add a slice of lemon to our glasses. The orange flavor was great, enjoyed the added citrus. I did use regular tea bags and maybe about half of the sugar. A refreshing drink for the summer but I think this would be good warmed with some honey in the colder months. This one is going in my favorites! Made and reviewed for Susie's World Tour 2019 - Morocco
