Kate's Fresh Peppermint Tea

This is as simple as can be and what a wonderful and easy way to use mint.  Mint is so easy to grow and does as well in a garden as in a patio container.  

Sweeten with honey or sugar if desired but Kate likes hers unsweetened with just the beautiful fresh mint flavour.
