Mint Tea


Once you sip a cup of your own home-brewed mint tea, you may never go back to tea bags. If you're drinking it hot, add a squeeze of lemon. Or pour cooled tea over ice cubes, and garnish with a sprig of mint.


  • 2 cups water

  • 1 bunch coarsely chopped fresh mint leaves and stems (about 1 cup)

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey

  • lemon wedges (optional)


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine water and mint and bring to a boil. Remove from heat; let steep 5 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve (discard solids) into a teapot or container, and mix in 1 to 2 tablespoons honey to taste. Serve with lemon wedges.
