How To Make Mint Tea

I start everyday with a cup of tea. Do you?

It can be warm or cold, it doesn’t really matter. Most green and black teas have enough caffeine for that morning boost. 

 The kind of tea depends on the season and my mood.  In Winter I might start with English Breakfast or Earl Grey.   In  the Spring it’s all about Green Jasmine.  A nice spiced tea is great for autumn.

But the Summer is dedicated to Mint tea and it can be enjoyed throughout the day. 

Grab a handful of fresh mint leaves and pour over boiling water to release its wonderful flavour and scent. Sweeten the tea with honey according to taste.

1. Take a few leaves of the mint in one hand and sharply clap your other hand on top, then drop the leaves into a teapot or cafetiere. Repeat with the rest of the mint, saving a few small sprigs for each glass as a garnish.

2. Fill up the pot with boiling water and let it infuse for 2-3 mins or until the liquid starts to take on a slight pale yellow/green hue. Strain the tea into cups or heatproof glasses and sweeten with honey to taste. Drop the reserved mint into the cups to decorate if you like.
