¼ cup fresh mint leaves, lightly crushed to release flavor
2 cups sparkling water
1 lemon, de-seeded and cut into 8 wedges
Fresh mint leaves and lemon wedges, for garnish, optional
In a medium pot, bring 2 cups water to a boil; turn off heat, add tea bags and steep 5 minutes.
Remove tea bags and stir in honey. Transfer to a pitcher; add 2 remaining cups water and mint. Cool in refrigerator 1 hour or until chilled.
When ready to serve, stir in sparkling water. Using a strainer to catch mint leaves, pour over ice in tall glasses and squeeze 1 lemon wedge into each glass. Garnish with additional fresh mint leaves and lemon wedges.
