Lemon Mint Tea is simple to make with only a few ingredients, and it can be enjoyed hot to warm you up, or cold to refresh you on a hot day!
Place tea bag and cinnamon stick into a small saucepan. Pour 8 ounces boiling water over them; immediately cover pan. Let tea steep (covered) for 5 minutes. Once fully steeped, remove tea bag and cinnamon stick.
Add 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar and 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice to hot tea. Stir well, until sugar fully dissolves.
Pour hot tea into a mug once sugar has dissolved. Garnish with a fresh sprig of mint and a lemon wedge, if desired. Serve, and enjoy.
Let tea first cool to room temperature. Once cooled, fill a glass with ice cubes, and pour tea into glass. NOTE: One reason you shouldn't pour HOT tea over ice is because it could possibly cause the glass to crack. The other reason is that the heat will melt the ice cubes which would water down the tea considerably.
Note: If making then the quantity desired, increase the amount of tea bags, sugar and lemon juice times the amount you want. However- you will only need ONE cinnamon stick to flavor up to about 10 servings.
