Iced Tea with Mint and Honey

Last weekend, I admitted I made a slight mistake by placing mint in the same herb container as my basil, cilantro and lavender. The mint is definitely doing its best to takeover the rest of the plants, but I’m trying to rein it in… with some delicious results along the way. During the week, I…
