I make something similar by using green tea bags! Will have to give this a try and see how it compares to my version, I bet both of them are good, LOL!

I like this new recipe! I have chocolate mint tea growing in a pot, I will try it and see if it turns out great. Thanks!


I just made some of the tea. It tastes great but is it suppose to be cloudy?

This looks nice and refreshing. A friend gave me mint years ago and I put it along my fence line in an area I don’t care if it takes over. I have used it to make mint simple syrup for mint jeulips. I used the leftover to sweeten tea but this kicks it up a notch for sure.


Sometime in the last century (l love to say that) whilst I was growing up in central Florida my mama made this yummy stuff. The only difference was we used fresh oj from the trees in the back yard. It sure is good stuff.

I have been drinking this my whole life. I love it. Never knew what it was called. My mom is French and I used to think she “created” this tea concoction. Guess I was incorrect. The only difference is that we also included one or two Red Zinger tea bags. I just made a batch last night. Sipping as I type. 🙂
