Mint Tea Recipe - Healthy Refreshing
and Very Easy-to-Make!

Using either peppermint or spearmint leaves, this refreshing mint tea recipe makes for a delicious healthy drink. Spearmint and peppermint are usually the ones most folks grow and use in their cooking...

But you could try some of the other 20+ varieties generally available. Pineapple, lemon, ginger, basil, apple, water and pennyroyal are just some varieties you could grow and use.

Mint Tea Recipe Notes

I do recommend you use the fresh leaves as you'll get a tastier healthier drink.

But if you only have dried available you can use them.

Just try and get the freshest dried you can.

Some herbs lose a lot of their flavour and strength in the drying process.

See my growing mint page for tips to get the freshest, healthiest leaves.
