Minty-Mint Iced Tea

This is so refreshing on a hot summer day! You can use any type of mint that you have on hand, but my favorite is spearmint. To make: Fill a jar with fresh mint leaves. Pour simmering hot water over them, cover with a saucer and let steep until cool enough to handle. Place the unstrained tea in the refrigerator and let it steep further for several hours or overnight. (This gives a really strong infusion.) Strain, sweeten to taste and pour over ice cubes. Best enjoyed in a hammock in the shade with a good book!
