Consider this recipe a three-for-one: You can make as directed for a hot or iced tea; or, you can make a frozen granita by increasing the agave nectar to 1/4 cup, then straining the finished tea, adding 1/4 cup chopped mint, and freezing in a shallow dish. Once it begins to freeze (about 2 hours), scrape it with a fork every 15 minutes until it's completely frozen and crystallized flakes have formed, about 2 more hours.
4 ounces fresh mint (1 large bunch), leaves and stems
2 strips lemon zest, about 1/4 by 2 inches each
In a teapot or large measuring cup, combine agave nectar, mint, and lemon zest. Top with 4 cups boiling water and stir to combine.
Steep for 5 minutes and strain.
Serve hot or over ice.
