Mint Tea Recipe

This mint tea recipe is very simple to make.

Don't let it brew longer than 10 minutes or its delicate flavor may be spoiled.

This recipe will make 2 cups.

Take a handful of fresh mint - peppermint is best for medicinal purposes.

You can afford to be generous, it grows like mad in the garden.

Rinse well to get any bugs off.

Roll the mint, leaves and stems in your hands to crush it - this begins to release the essential oils.

I use a cafetiere to make my mint tea - top up with just boiled water.

Put the top on which helps the volatile oils remain in the pot.

Allow it to brew for no more than 10 minutes.

You can sweeten this recipe with honey if you need to - it's an acquired taste like all herbal tea.

Take up to 4 cups a day to relieve flatulence.

This can also relieve stomach bloating, indigestion and nausea. It can also be helpful as IBS relief (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

It is soothing, refreshing and comforting.

It is possible to use any kind of garden mint instead of peppermint, but it has less menthol and so has a milder effect.

There are some great reusable gizmos if you're making herbal tea. It's best to buy your own herb material or grow it yourself if you can. 

That means you're going to have loose tea of course and bits floating on the top are an irritation. Herb tea is supposed to be relaxing!

So, one of these tea infusers or a special pot will save you the problems. Top box is and bottom box is
