Iced Mint Tea

I'm returning to the tastes of Morocco again today, for this delicious sweetened iced tea.

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil, then combine with 1 and 1/2 teaspoons loose leaf green tea and let steep for 2 and 1/2 minutes.

Strain the mixture through a fine sieve over a large bowl; discard the tea leaves. Stir in about 12 or 13 fresh mint leaves and let steep 5 minutes. Leave the mint leaves in, and stir in 1/4 cup raw sugar, stirring until the sugar dissolves.

Let cool completely, and come time to serve, serve over ice! 1 cup is 60 calories.

loose leaf green tea $8.99
mint $1.99
raw sugar $3.79
