Peppermint Tea

The peppermint bed has woken up and I couldn’t be happier.  I planted this mint last year and already it has spread throughout this raised bed.  Which is okay…that is what I wanted it to do.  Fresh mint and mojitos for the summer!    Not to mention hot tea right now!  It is simple to make…Pick the best leaves and let dry for several days.  On the day of preparation, bring your tea kettle of water to boil.  Add 1 Tablespoon of the dried mint leaves to a tea bag or strainer, fill cup with hot water, let steep until your satisfied with the strength, remove leaves and enjoy.  Heavenly with a bit of honey to sweeten it up.
