Is the heat getting you down?  When the temperature starts to rise I love a nice tall glass of iced tea.  Nothing is as refreshing after a long day working in the garden.

This lemon mint iced tea recipe is really easy to make!  Our family has been enjoying this for years since a friend first made it for us.

Bring 6 cups of water to a boil.  When it comes to a boil turn the heat off and put 4 tea bags in the pot.  Cover and let it steep for 5 minutes.

When the tea is finished steeping remove the tea bags and add 1 cup of tightly packed fresh mint leaves.  Let this steep for 15 minutes.

After the mint has steeped strain your tea into a pitcher.  Then add 3/4 of a cup of frozen lemonade concentrate.  Stir well and refrigerate until cold.

Enjoy!

I love to serve drinks in fun glasses and my favourites are the mason jars with handles and gingham lids. I think they are just so cute and perfect for a farmhouse style look.
