Iced Applemint Tea
2.50 c Water
2.00 Tea bags
0.50 c Fresh mint; chopped
1.00 Lemon peel strip 2" x 1/2"
2.00 c Apple juice or cider;
1.00 tb Lemon juice
4.00 Mint sprigs (optional)
In a medium-size saucepan, bring the water to a boil over moderately
high heat - about 3 minutes. Pour the boiling water into a warmed
teapot and add the tea bags, mint and lemon peel; cover and steep
until cool - about 20 minutes. Remove and discard the tea bags.
Strain the tea into a 2-quart pitcher and stir in the apple juice and
lemon juice. Fill four 12-ounce glasses with ice cubes and divide
the apple-mint tea among them. Stir briskly and garnish each drink
with a mint sprig, if you like.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
