I have mint growing in my garden and didn't know what to do with it. So, I got on a trusty old search engine and looked up mint tea. I tried a batch or two and came up with my favorite recipe.
5 sprigs mint (stems and all - cleaned very well)
1 cup water
Boil the above for 5 minutes or until the leaves start turning brown.
Strain into a pitcher and add 3/4 cup sugar (or to your taste). Stir to dissolve and add water to fill the pitcher.
I've noticed that since I've started drinking this, I have much more energy....and, I think I'm losing some weight too.
Anyone have any other uses for mint?
