Fresh Mint Tea

Take a moment to relax with this herbal tea made fresh from the garden.

Mint tea


  • 2 packed cups mint (half peppermint, half spearmint), well washed
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 4 cups boiling water

Place leaves in a suitably sized teapot or other container with a cover. Add cloves and honey. Pour boiling water over all, and let steep for about 20 minutes, then strain and serve. Can also be chilled for later use.

If you have mint, you probably have a lot of this pervasive perennial. This is the time of year to pick it for drying, so you can enjoy some of those teas next winter.

Serves 4.

Prepare the same way, but use Chocolate-Mint leaves instead and serve over ice. I sweeten mine with Stevia or agave nectar. Made with stevia, it's like chocolate-mint ice cream with 0 calories.

We just planted mint last year so I will enjoy this tea this summer.
