Fresh Mint Tea

Maybe you already know this, but just in case... I have a suggestion for those of you who have purchased fresh mint for a specific recipe and then wonder what you to do with the leftovers.

You can simply make mint tea, (hot or iced) by chopping fresh mint and soaking it in boiled water.

Required: Fresh Mint Leaves, Water, Honey

Pour desired amount of water in a tea kettle. Place on high heat. Chop some mint leaves. Take your leaves and place them in a French Press or teapot. If you don't have one, you can put them in a tall glass. Place 1 Tbsp (or to taste) of honey into the press or glass. Pour boiled water. Stir to mix up the honey. Let steep for about a minute or two depending on how strong you like it. If you are doing this in a glass, be sure to keep stirring so that the water absorbs the leaves. They'll be floating to the top.

For the iced version, once your leaves are finished steeping. Drain and pour only the water into a glass full of ice.
