Berry Mint Basil Iced Green Tea

Nor M.


I love all kinds of teas. I decided to combine Basil, and mint together in this tea. If you don't like green tea use black tea. The herbs complement each other very well. Even if you don't like mint or basil. You can omit them if you like. This is the way I make my tea. It is great because you can drink it right away with out chilling it. I hope you all enjoy it. It is a refreshing summer time drink.
