Ingredients

  • 4 quarts water

  • 8 cups packed fresh mint leaves

  • 4 cups white sugar

Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Add mint leaves and steep for 15 minutes. Remove tea leaves from water with a slotted spoon, squeezing leaves to extract any additional liquid; discard leaves.

  2. Stir sugar into steeped tea; return to a boil and cook until sugar is completely dissolved and flavors combined, about 10 minutes. Pour tea concentrate into freezer-safe containers and freeze.

Cook's Note:

It is just as yummy to add the water and serve it without freezing; however, make sure that you have it all the way cooled before serving!

You can also use other sweeteners (stevia, honey, agave nectar, etc.), but it tastes the best with sugar. What doesn't?

Another suggestion is to pour it into Popsicle(R) molds and make frozen pops.
