I am a big fan of tea- hot/cold. In the summer a great way to beat the heat is to make a pitcher of ice tea (I prefer sweetened green tea mix) and pop some mint sprigs right in the pitcher. Let it meld with your brew. Right off the bat you'll get the minty taste, but leave it in for a day and the whole pitcher will be infused. Serve the sprigs or toss them. Either way, enjoy!
