Preparation Time: 8 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins


    1 small bunch mint (about 15 sprigs), preferably spearmint
    4 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks
    1 slice fresh ginger (1-2 slices) (optional)
    6 cup cold water
    4 bags green tea, regular or decaffeinated
    6 Tbsp frozen apple juice concentrate, or to taste


    Place the mint, cinnamon sticks and ginger, if using, in a large saucepan. Add the water, cover the pot and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat.

    Add the tea bags and steep them for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags, mint, ginger, and cinnamon sticks. Do not throw out the cinnamon sticks; they are used to serve the tea. Sweeten the hot tea to taste with the apple juice concentrate.

    Pour the tea into mugs, add a cinnamon stick for garnish and serve. Or, the tea can be refrigerated, then serve cold or reheated.
