What you’ll need…
6 Tazo Zen tea bags
How to do it…
Step 1 – Simple Syrup:
-In a small pot, add rock sugar (amount depends on how sweet you like it) and water.
-On medium high heat, wait until the rock sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally.
-Pour into mason jar or pitcher of choice.
While the simple syrup is being made, this is a great time to open all the tea bag packets and don’t forget to cut off the string and attached paper. This results in easy clean up later.
Step 3 – Tea Time:
-Now that the stove is off and everything is cooling down, prepare to pour the simple syrup, tea mixture, and mint into the pitcher.
-Simply add cold water to fill up the rest of the pitcher.
-Chill in refrigerator overnight.
If you really can’t wait (the way I can’t wait,) just add ice cubes to your cup, pour the tea in there, and chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. One word: REFRESHING!
