Summertime Herbed Iced Tea

It is summer and HOT so literally any type of iced tea will do.
I was reminded by a friend how easy it is to just make a pot of hot herbed hot tea and
then make it into iced tea!

For today I used Lemon Balm right from my garden!

Lemon Balm is a beautiful herb.
Medicinally it can promote relaxation and can help with digestive upset.
Flavour wise, it tastes mildly of citrus and very refreshing.
Lemon balm is also part of the Mint family.
