- 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.
