There is nothing like this drink to quench the thirst in Israel's hot climate. During the summer months (June through September) people look for ways to overcome the effects of the heat. The natural mint leaves which many Israelis grow at home are favored as a cooling addition to tea and vegetable salads.
In a teapot or carafe put sugar, tea bags, mint leaves, and lemon salt. Add boiling water, cover and let steep.
