Mint is an aggressive plant so we like to keep ours planted in pots or in locations that can support its growth. This simple tea recipe is a great go to, to warm up in the morning, a simple option to sip on after dinner, as well as during this cold and flu season.
With the ability to dry or freeze Mint from your own garden it’s a great item to have on hand throughout the year especially as we have seen the inflation on ingredients like these at the grocery store. We recommend freezing the mint in ice cubes that can later be utilized for recipes and will keep the original effervescent flavors of the mint leaf intact.
Reference our instructions below for the best results and enjoy!
Cheers and stay safe!
