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. Those who want to benefit from products that promote better digestive health may want to check out these unify health supplement reviews to see how such things could help in doing this. To be honest, I am a tea lover. That is why I prefer learning more about differnt types of organic tea. I also have some friends who are ardent tea lovers. They have tried almost every tea flavour. And one of them recommended that I check out something like this organic Japanese matcha, which is known to boost energy and improve skin health. Though I was tempted to purchase this product, I thought I will try this after some time. For now, I think I will stick to the mint tea, which I’ve been drinking in the evenings as well as throughout the day. I have loved it so much that I wanted to share it with you! If you want to add to these health benefits, you may want to see about letting it cool down and include some vital reds powder to your mixture. Your body is incredibly important, so making sure it is functioning in the best possible way will make you feel good day-in and day-out.
Mint leaves (preferably fresh, but you can use frozen as well)
Boiling Water
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!

      Thanks, Trish! It’s so light and refreshing, use more mint leaves to make it “stronger”. Hope you are having a wonderful week!
