It has been a wet spring but that is good news for my mint and rhubarb! I have always grown mint, or should I say that it has always grown itself (it's practically a weed) but have never done anything with it. I decided to give it a big ol' trim and make a big pot of tea.
|Remove the leaves from the stems and give them a rinse|
|I think it would be about 4 leaves per 2 cups of water...so I filled the pot :0)|
|Bring it to a boil|
|Turn off and strain. You could leave it a little while longer depending on how strong you want it...I had a ridiculous amount of mint so I strained it right away and it was perfect|
|Add a little honey (if you like)|
|And serve! You can see the mint oils floating on the top...yum!|
