For at least a couple years I was thinking in the back of my mind that a cool, refreshing peppermint drink would be about the best thing ever, but I never did anything about it. I mean, sure, there's peppermint tea, but turning it into iced tea seemed a little strange, and wasn't exactly what I was looking for. Time passed, and I became addicted to the bottled Arizona brand green tea in various flavors, like green tea sweetened with honey or with plum. This is good, I thought to myself, but it would be so much better if it was sorta a green tea/peppermint blend. Thus a brilliant idea was born.
Thew's Most Delicious Thing Man Has Ever Known
In a 2 quart pitcher, brew four teabags of your favorite variety of green tea (I use the basic Celestial Seasonings green tea) and four teabags of peppermint tea. Sweeten to taste. I use about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of sugar for each 2 quart pitcher. Chill or pour over ice, and enjoy!
This is such a cool, refreshing drink that now that spring has sprung and I've begun to get out on my bike again I've been brewing this stuff like a madman. So good. You should make some, but everytime you drink it or serve it for others you must refer to it as The Most Delicious Thing Man Has Ever Known.
