How to make easy peppermint tea
Use fresh leaves from your own garden or even the grocery store to make this bright and beneficial tea!here i used my homegrown peppermint leaves.
Fresh mint leaves give this mint tea recipe an alluring herbal aroma and flavor. Since this tea is made with an herb instead of tea leaves, it is considered an herbal tea or tisane and does not contain any caffeine.
You can vary the mint in this recipe as long as it’s fresh. Peppermint or spearmint are classic choices, but other varieties will work just as well. You can even use a mixture of mint varieties. While you can use dried mint for tea, it doesn’t compare to the flavor of fresh herbs. Serve it hot or iced, sweetened or unsweetened, and with or without lemon. It’s easy to adjust to your taste and customize to each drinker.
