Start with a large bunch of fresh mint. I used mint straight from my Tower Garden, washed and cut up into mugs (one handful per). Add boiling water and steep for 3-7 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea flavor (covering your mug will allow it to steep). Add just a touch of honey and enjoy! (You can drink with tea leaves in or use a slotted spoon to remove them) Mint has SO many health benefits – this tea is great for digestion and/or nausea.
