Iced Green Tea with Lemongrass, Stevia and Mint

I love warm days and a glass of ice tea.  I really don't think there could be anything better!  This brings me to this little concoction which is sure to please!  Really easy and the bonus is a lemongrass stalk is so inexpensive.  This only cost me $0.24!  So if you want to make something a little different try this healthy drink on for size!
 Directions:

4 Green tea bags
1 Mint tea bag
1 Lemongrass stalk, trimmed at the bottom
1/2 teaspoon Stevia sweetener
2-3 stems Spearmint
2-3 stems Stevia leaves (Optional- just decor)
5-6 cups boiling water

Method:

Pour boiling water over tea bags.  Steep 3 to 5 minutes add the stevia sweetener and the lemongrass stalk.  Allow to steep another 5 minutes or until serving.  Can be made a day in advance and kept in the refrigerator.  Serve with lemongrass stalk, fresh spearmint and stevia leaves!  Yum!
