It’s hot out here or am I the only one feeling this heat? I just wanna get home and drink something cold and of course, it’s gotta be healthy. Mint tea perhaps? So I’ve written a blog post on how to plant and grow mint in your very own garden or just in a small container in your house. You can check it out here. Mint is great for aromatherapy as it just calms every single nerve in your body. to prove it, next time your having a headache, why not try smelling mint and see its effect? It’s great for fresh breathe and this tea is super easy to make. Here’s how…
1 large handful of fresh mint (include leaves and stems)
6 cups room temperature water
8 cups boiling water
1/2 tsp pure honey
Gather a very large handful of fresh mint leaves. If you want your tea stronger, use two handfuls of leaves.
Rinse the freshly picked mint with clean water.
Put rinsed mint in a large bowl and add 6 cups of clean, room temperature water.
Crush the mint with your clean hands until the water turns a brownish color.
Strain into a jar
Boil 8 cups of water and pour over the crushed mint leaves that are still in the bowl (that you just strained). Let the mint leaves steep in the boiled water for 10-15 minutes
Add steeped mint tea to the jar with the rest of the tea. Add your honey, and stir well to combine.
Add clean water to the jar until you have about a gallon of tea.
Add ice cubes to the tea to help it cool down faster. Serve over ice, and enjoy!
