Fresh Mint Tea

Posted on March 7, 2014
Hi Everyone! Happy Weekend! I have a great little “recipe” to share with you today, that I have been loving for the past couple of weeks. I am a huge tea lover and just fell in love with this fresh mint tea when my mom recently made it for me. I drink peppermint tea almost every night before going to bed, because I love how soothing and calming it is, so I couldn’t believe how simple the idea of this fresh mint tea was – all it is is mint leaves and boiling water! It’s so wonderfully refreshing and light, and it’s almost as if you can feel it cleansing your body as you drink it! Mint has many health benefits, including helping with your digestive system, respiratory system, skin, oral health and even stress level just to name a few. I’ve been drinking this tea in the evenings as well as throughout the day, and have loved it so much that I wanted to share it with you!

DIRECTIONS
To make this tea, simply add some mint leaves into a pot of boiling water, and let your tea steep for about 5 – 10 minutes. Use about 5 mint leaves per cup of water, but you can adjust the quantity based on how strong you want your tea to be. It’s just as simple as that!
Have a great weekend, Everyone!

    Simple and delicious! I love mint teas too. I never even thought about using fresh leaves instead of dried sachets. Thanks for the inspiration!
