If you plan on making your own mint tea, you might want to use this pretty teapot:
This RSVP Chai Teapot holds 6 cups of tea, is made of stoneware and is lead free.  This teapot can be used with The Empress Tea Strainer.

On to my recipe.....
I clipped a few sprigs of mint from the planter on my patio.
Even in early fall my mint is still growing strong!

INGREDIENTS
8 sprigs of fresh mint
6 cups of boiling water
honey, if desired


HOW TO MAKE THE TEA


  1. Wash the mint - Rinse the leaves to remove any soil, pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil
  3. Roll the mint between your palms or tear the leaves to help release the aromas. Place the leaves into the teapot.
  4. Pour the boiling water over the leaves, cover the teapot and let it steep for 5-10 minutes.  The longer you leave the leaves in the stronger the tea. Use a strainer if desired to remove the loose leaves.
  5. Pour into your favorite teacup. You can add honey if desired.  
  6. Inhale deeply, sip and enjoy the refreshing flavor and uplifting aroma!





Here is a little information on mint and how I grow it:
Mint is a hardy perennial and is easy to grow.  Mint requires little maintenance, (which I love) however it does tend to take over the garden.  To combat this problem I grow my mint in containers.
I also keep mason jars filled with herbs in my kitchen. If you are thinking of starting an herb garden in your kitchen you may want to use this sweet herb garden set.
