Bring 8 cups water to a boil in a large pot over high heat. Turn off water and add tea. Cover and steep 4 to 5 minutes. Add mint to the pot. Cover and steep 5 minutes more. Add sugar and stir to combine. Strain and serve. Garnish with a mint sprig. 

To serve chilled, allow the tea to reach room temperature, then transfer to a pitcher, cover and refrigerate until cold. Serve in a tall glass with ice and a mint sprig for garnish.
