Fresh mint tea

tags: | |

After a good meal, I enjoy a simple cup of fresh mint tea. You simply can’t get the flavour nor, I suspect, the benefits from a peppermint teabag. And this is just as simple to prepare.

Mint has been used throughout time as a medicinal herb to treat stomach aches and to aid digestion. I give it to David after spicy food. It ensures a quieter night, if you know what I mean.


  • A handful of fresh mint (leaves and stalks)


  • Kettle
  • Teapot (or mug)


  1. Boil a kettle of water (filtered preferably).
  2. Heat a teapot.
  3. Add the mint and fill with boiled water.
  4. Steep for at least three minutes.
  5. Drink hot.

What you should know

Try it with a little honey for sweetness.
