Glass container for brewing tea
6 cups filtered water
3 tea bags (black tea)
3-4 stems of fresh mint
1/2 cup simple syrup
Lemon for garnishing your cup
Gather stems of fresh mint leaves. You can get mint at the grocery store also or opt out of the mint.
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
Cook on medium high heat for about 3 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved. Stir continuously to prevent burning.
Add the simple syrup.
Add lemon slices and ice to your drinking glass.
If you add the lemon to the brewing tea, it will make the tea bitter.
The tea turned out perfect, and is not bitter.
Have fun and enjoy!
