Bring 8 cups water to a boil in a large pot. Place tea bags in a large bowl and pour boiling water over. Add half of mint; cover and steep for 10 minutes. Strain into pitcher, discarding tea bags and mint. Stir in sugar to dissolve. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 2 hours. Pour into large glasses full of ice cubes. Garnish with reserved mint.
I guess we like the more traditional iced tea in this house. We really didn't care for the sugar and the peppermint tea bags along with the fresh mint, made this too minty. I would've preferred to make it with just the English tea and the mint leaves. So many great recipes out there. Won't be making this again.
