Truth be told, I stumbled upon this recipe completely by accident. I had a hot cup of peppermint tea brewed and ready but the way things are in a growing business, I never got around to drinking it and it grew cold. Someone had mentioned cucumbers go well with mint so I  chopped up a fresh cucumber, dropped it into my now cold tea and stuck the cup into the fridge....and voila! a cold tea that made you tingle with cold even during the hottest day of the year!

I have now made slight changes to the recipe to further simplify and perfect the  recipe. Have fun!
