Iced Mint Tea or as The PA Dutch Call it Meadow Tea

          Refreshing on a hot day with the pure crisp blast of mint, this iced tea is the Bombdiggity! Get yourself some mint to plant & you have mint for the summer season. 

5 Sprigs of Mint 7 Inches Long ( Strip leaves from the stem but use the tip with it's bunch of leaves) 
6 Cups Water
1/2 Cup to 1 Cup Sugar
Cold Water
Place mint leaves & the tip of the stem with it's group of leaves, in a deep saucepan. Add the 6 cups water & bring to a boil. Immediately turn off the heat but leave tea steep for at least 20 minutes. In a 1/2 gallon container place the sugar, ( we love it sweet & use about 3/4 cup of sugar but play with it to get your tea the way you like it). Pour the steeped tea into the container & stir until sugar has melted. Now add cold water to make a 1/2 gallon. Save leaves for one more batch of tea OR double the recipes sugar & water amounts & make 1 gallon.  Refrigerate tea. Serve ICY COLD over ice  with Mint Leaf Garnish Optional!
