Ingredients
  • 4 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 green tea bags
  • 1 (2-inch) piece orange peel
  • 8 sprigs fresh mint
Directions
  • Bring the water to a boil. When it's boiling, add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Turn off the heat.

  • Drop the tea bags and the orange peel into a teapot. Rip the mint leaves and drop them in too. Pour the water into the teapot, put the lid on, and allow to steep for about 10 minutes.

  • When you're ready to serve, pour into small glasses, using a tea strainer. If you can, try pouring a good few inches from the glass - this cools down the tea, and creates a light foam on top that is traditional. You can also chill this tea and serve over ice on hot days. Refreshing, and great for your digestion!
