Simple Mint Tea
A few years ago I noticed one of my personal training clients drinking a green water. I asked her what it was and she said it was a simple mint tea.
I had a load of it yesterday – this is it!
I drink this whenever I have a some mint left over, which is quite regularly. To be honest it’s so simple I don’t even think this can be called a recipe – it’s just water and mint, hence the simple in simple mint tea! Still, this is the most relevant section of the blog for it to go in, so here is my ‘recipe’ for a simple mint tea.
- Grab a handful of fresh mint leaves and put them in a mug – feel free to chop them. Personally I just rip them up a bit.
- Pour boiling water over the leaves.
- Stir around, stab the leaves etc and allow the mint to infuse.
At this point I could tell you about how great mint is for you, but the truth is I drink this because I like it and it makes a nice change from water. That, plus it’s a great way to use up left over mint leaves. They are easy to grow, so you might want to check out this article from GardenersPath.com
