I had an old, very large mason jar that belonged to Jim's, grandmother. So I ran out and bought some of those tea bags fore mentioned, threw them in with a couple of mint bags (I used 3 of the spice and 2 mint) and let 'er steep out in my garden. The jar sat there most of the day (I admit, I had forgotten about it) and when I went out late in the afternoon, there it was, dark and warm and ready to be poured over ice, and I loved seeing it in this old jar, one that no doubt, was used many time in the past.
Tasting it, I decided that even with the mint, it was still a bit too sweet, so I squeezed a couple of lemons and added the juice to the mix, and there it was, Jenny's Ice Tea..Perffeto!!
