Heat the water and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Once the mixture is heated through and all the sugar has dissolved. Add the fresh mint leaves, simmer for about 1 minute and remove from heat. Allow to cool.
In a tall glass, add the ice cubes, followed by the lemon juice, 1/2 cup of the cooled simple syrup (water and sugar mixture), and 3/4 cup of the Pure Leaf Unsweetened Iced Tea. Stir to combine. Depending on your preferences, you could add slightly more simple syrup for a sweeter flavor.
Serve cold and with fresh mint leaves and/or lemon slice as a garnish.
MY TIP: Make simple syrup in a big batch, and you can store in fridge for up to 6 months.
