In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring 2 cups water to the point of steaming, remove from heat and add tea bags. Allow tea bags to steep for 8 minutes.
Remove and discard tea bags, add honey, stir to combine. Add 6 cups chilled water to a half gallon pitcher, next add the tea and stir. Add sliced lemons along with fresh mint leaves. Serve over ice and enjoy!
Note: Never boil tea bags as it makes the tea bitter. You may steep tea up to 12 minutes in steaming water as this allows more antioxidants to be released but will also make the tea stronger.
