At the beginning of summer, I bought several mint plants. A spearmint, a chocolate mint and a regular mint. At first they didn’t seem to be thriving, but after I moved them out of the direct sunlight, they went crazy. I have all kinds of mint growing. I wanted to make a mint tea. First I cut some stems from each of my mint plants and washed them. Then I put them in a pot and just barely covered them with water.
I boiled them for awhile and then let it all cool a bit. Then I put it through a strainer and into a glass jar.
There is no sugar in this, so to make a glass of iced mint tea, I put ice in a glass, add about 2T of this syrup and about 1/2 tsp of sugar. It’s so tasty and refreshing!
