The most delicious thing in the world ever invented by the hands of man

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.

It really is the most delicious thing in the world ever invented by the hands of man. And I don't even really like tea. But this is amazing
