Recipe: Spiced Iced Mint Tea

Dear Reader,
Tuesdays are dedicated to Single Living Skills so please send in your handy household tips, recipes, directions for plunging the toilet and all the other "fun" stuff you get to do now. They can be serious and of actual help, or you can vent a little.
It just wouldn't be summer at my house without this special drink. The Single Living Skill to develop with this recipe is enjoyment, or make that enjoymint! It's a delicious alternative to sugary soft drinks this 4th of July.
