• A handful or freshly washed mint (spearmint or peppermint).
Wash and tear up the fresh mint leaves.
Bring water almost to the boil.
Place mint leaves in a teapot with a strainer.
Pour heated water to fill the pot.
Leave to infuse for about 5 minutes or longer for a stronger tea.
Iced mint tea is very refreshing on a hot summer’s day. Try it with a squeeze of lemon!
Tip: Mint tea can help to reduce symptoms of nausea, headache and lethargy. Teas with delicate leaves require below boiling water temperatures, too high temperatures will cook their leaves and ruin their delicate flavour.
