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.
- 1 Large Sprig Fresh Peppermint (About 7-8 mint leaves)
- 1 c Water
Heat your water in a kettle or the microwave until just about boiling.
Pour the water over the mint leaves. Stir and gently bruise the mint leaves against the side of the cup to help release the flavour and let steep 2 minutes.
Sweeten with honey or sugar if desired and enjoy.
Mint is soothing for the tummy and relaxing for the soul.
