freshly brewed mint tea, a sunday favourite ♥
My sunday morning is a crowned by freshly brewed mint tea, a quiet soothing moment to start the day. I dropped Mr. N at the airport early this morning, so I decided to make some herbal tea once home, to slow down and unwind from the morning rush. Home made herbal tea is easy to make and the flavour combinations are endless. A batch of fresh mint is simply delicious, a favourite of mine either hot or cold. Generally I tend to drink this in the evening, it has become a bit of ritual this winter to mark the end of the day and relax. A tea moment is wonderful because it cannot be rushed and it forces you to slow down.
How to make? Tear the mint leaves and place into a strainer placed over a glass bowl or teapot. Pour boiling water over the leaves so they are covered under water at all times. To release the oils, bruise the leaves with a wooden spoon. Let the flavours infuse with a covered lid for about 10 minutes. Squeeze excess flavour from leaves and remove. Pour into a cup, sweeten with honey and squeeze a bit of lemon. Garnish with fresh mint leaves.
You can’t beat a nice mint tea especially when it’s homemade.
So true 🌿💕
