Technically not a tea, but a tisane, this herbal non-caffeinated beverage is perfect for those days when it’s just too hot to boil water. So refreshing and super easy to make.

If you don’t have a muddler or pestle, use the back of a spoon to mash the mint with the lime and sugar.

    This is a great looking drink. It looks refreshing and wholly natural, something that I crave in a drink, especially with all the over-chemically drinks that one sees in the stores these days. This would be the perfect drink to sip on during a law school lecture. Thanks for sharing!
