1/2 cup of sugar? This is cooking light recipe? The tea on its own is enough. No sugar necessary.
This is very easy to make and so refreshing! Excellent with hot and spicy foods too. I used way less mint then called for and it was perfect for quenching the palate. I also used organic blue agave (half the amount of sugar) instead of sugar to sweeten. A great change from regular iced tea and is one of our favorite summer drinks.
