What a tasty way to make iced tea. I enjoyed how all the flavors: orange, lemon, mint, and tea melded really well. I used 6 bags of tea; 2 of them being Earl Grey and the rest black. Though I loved the iced mintyness, my daughter commented how the mint was the dominant flavor, but I thought it was fine. I have mint planted in my garden (grows like a weed), so this is a positive addition to my files as I will be enjoying this iced tea during those hot summer months. Thank you Mikekey for a keeper. Made it for Pick Me tag game.
