Citrus Mint Tea

Tracy / September 27, 2010

We haven’t always been big tea drinkers. Five or so years back, I took my girls to a tea house and I have been hooked ever since!

I thought I might share a quick recipe, especially good for someone feeling a bit sickly right now (those germs love fall, don’t they?!).
