8 cups water, divided
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 family-size tea bags
7 sprigs fresh mint
1/2 cup lemon juice


In saucepan, boil 4 cups water with sugar for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and steep tea bags and mint for 5–10 minutes. Add lemon juice. Strain. Add remaining 4 cups cold water. Serve over ice.

Fun Fact: Have a tea party! Here’s what to use:

• Cups with saucers
• Milk, not cream
• Sugar cubes with tongs
• Lacy napkins
• Classical or vintage music
• Flowers and candles
• Tea sandwiches and sweets on a tiered plate

It's okay to eat with your fingers...but not necessary to hold your pinky out when you drink your tea!?!
