Step 1:Combine water, sugar and mint in a large pot


Step 2:Place pot over a high heat

Step 5: Collect 36 tea pods or bags with paper tabs removed and set aside

Step6: Carefully remove pot from heat and add 36 tea pods to hot mint infused sugar water


.Step7: Steep tea for 20 minutes.

Step 8: Using your hand or 2 large slotted spoons squeeze pods to extract tea


Step9: Dispose used pods

Step11: Cut 1 lemon in half

Step12: Squeeze the lemon into the drink dispenser directly over the ice and remove any seeds


Step13: Carefully pour tea into dispenser and stir


Step14: Fill a tall tumbler glass with ice and fill with yummy tea garnish with a sprig of mint or lemon or both!
