I received some mint leaves from my mother-in-law this past weekend. She has a very large plant and I am hoping to take part of that plant home with me one of these days. For now I had a few clippings of leaves. With this I made some wonderful mint tea.
I love drinking mint tea at night. It helps soothe my tummy aches that I have quite frequently.
Bring one gallon of water to a boil and add in approximately 15 leaves. Turn off stove and allow to steep for 15 minutes. Sift out leaves. You can add more or less leaves to taste.This post is linked to Simple Lives Thursday at A Little Bit of Spain in Iowa.
