Mint Tea Recipe

You Will Need
  • Mint Leaves
  • Tea Leaves (optional)
  • Water
  • A Cooking Pot
  • Honey
  • The first thing to do when you are looking to make mint tea is to find yourself fresh mint leaves. If you are fortunate enough to have access to a garden that has an abundance of mint leaves, you can go right ahead and pluck mint leaves from your garden. On the other hand, if you don’t enjoy access to a garden, you really don’t have much to worry about. You can always buy fresh mint leaves from a green grocer. The only criterion here, however, is to ensure that the mint leaves you use to make your tea are fresh!
  • Now, you can go ahead and add around a cup or two of water to a pot. Place the pot on a source of heat and wait until the water begins to boil. The best way to boil the water is to heat it over a low flame as opposed to heating it over a powerful flame.
  • Once the water looks like it’s beginning to boil, you can go ahead and add the mint leaves. Add just as much as you need. If you want your tea to be strong, you can add more mint leaves to the boiling water. On the other hand, if you want your tea to be light, you can add less mint leaves to the boiling water.
  • Whatever is the amount of mint leaves, if you have decided to add to the tea leaves, feel free to add the same. Once you add the mint leaves, how much ever of it, you will have to permit the tea to brew for a minimum of three minutes or a maximum of five minutes. Here, it all depends on how strong you want your tea to be. If you want your tea to be really strong, you can allow it to brew for four to five minutes. On the other hand, if you want your tea to be light, you can brew it for just around three minutes or even lesser. Here, it’s all about a matter of taste!  
  • Your tea is now ready. Strain it into a pot, give it some time to cool and then pour it into a cup, sit back, sip and enjoy. If you want the element of sweetness in your tea, you can feel free to add just as much as honey as you may need.
