    A nice tea-based based punch made with fresh mint leaves and fruit juice. I think it tastes better the next day - so now make it the day before and leave it overnight in the fridge.

    I'm leaving a second review with a helpful note. We've found the tea tastes much better the second day after preparing. I try to let it in the refrigerator overnight and it's great the next day. It seems to take a while for all the flavors to blend together well. Also, now when I make it, I eliminate the tea bags. The result is a refreshing citrus mint with nice color. I continue to use stevia instead of sugar, thus a caffeine free, sugar free summer drink.  -  08 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
