The words "intoxicating" or "spiked tea" come up when I think of vanilla extract in cold tea. I guess is a way it could be refreshing.

Not really - the amount is so small that when mixed in with a gallon of tea, the "intoxication" would be infinitesimal. Just makes it refreshing on occasion, in my opinion.

I bought my chocolate mint plants on Ebay of all places. I started with a few plants and potted them rather than planted in the garden because they spread like weeds. During winter I cover them with a layer of hay and come spring they are back. They add wonderful flavor to tea. I also freeze them in ice cubes so in winter I can add them to my tea.

Oh. It's kind of like a preference thing. Kind of like how I like to take cold showers in the summer. I never thought of putting vanilla extract in tea before, but it does sound interesting.

In fact, mint is known for taking over so you don't want to put it next to a bunch of other plants you love. I am trying to encourage two mint plants I put in last year to become one large mint patch (I am halfway there) so I can have mint iced tea and mint lemonade all summer!

Sorry for topic change. I promise it will be mint SWEET tea.
Oh yeah mint will grow like crazy. It will grow indoors as well.
