Fresh mint tea
- Preparation and cooking time
- Makes one 500-600ml pot (serves 1-2)
Grab a handful of fresh mint leaves and pour over boiling water to release its wonderful flavour and scent. Sweeten the tea with honey according to taste
- STEP 1
Take a few leaves of the mint in one hand and sharply clap your other hand on top, then drop the leaves into a teapot or cafetiere. Repeat with the rest of the mint, saving a few small sprigs for each glass as a garnish.
- STEP 2
Fill up the pot with boiling water and let it infuse for 2-3 mins or until the liquid starts to take on a slight pale yellow/green hue. Strain the tea into cups or heatproof glasses and sweeten with honey to taste. Drop the reserved mint into the cups to decorate if you like.
