As mentioned in the California chicken salad recipe thread, this is a great accompaniment.

4 regular size Lipton tea bags
8 cups water, divided
3/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup Welch's White grape juice (do NOT use the purple)
Fresh mint leaves

Bring 4 cups of water mixed with the sugar to boil until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and after it stops boiling add the tea bags and let steep for 15-20 minutes, dunking a couple of times. Remove bags without squeezing excess liquid out. Cool. In a large pitcher mix remainder of water, lemon juice and white grape juice with the tea/sugar mixture.

To serve, place 4-5 medium sized mint leaves in the bottom of a tall iced tea glass, muddle somewhat with a spoon. Add ice to fill glass. Pour tea over, stir with an iced teaspoon and serve.

NOTE: It's also good without the mint leaves, but better with.
