Beautiful Peppermint Tea is light, refreshing, and takes just minutes to make. It’s also a natural stress reliever that can also help with stomach upset.
1Rinse the mint leaves well, then place on a saucer. Crush with the back of a spoon to bruise the leaves so they release their essential oils.
2Transfer the leaves to a mug and pour in 8 ounces of hot water.
3Allow to steep for 7-10 minutes. Remove leaves, and add lemon juice if desired. Enjoy hot or pour over ice.
4Variations: Try adding a 1/2 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger during the steeping time or use a mix of spearmint and peppermint leaves.
