This was made during the peak of summer. It was more than 90F today and I had absolutely no appetite for anything. I walked out to my garden during hot afternoon. Clipped a few stems of sweet peppermint to make this mint tea, and sweetened with honey.
With a good book at hand... my afternoon is just perfect !
1 杯 新鲜的薄荷叶
2 杯 水
1 cup of fresh mint leaves
2 cups of water
Rock sugar/Brown sugar/Honey to taste
1. Harvest some mint leaves from my garden. Clean and pick the leaves, crush the leaves a little with hand.
2. In a small pot, bring 2 cups of water to boil with mint leaves in it, cover and cook for a few minutes.
3. Turn off the stove and add 1 red tea bag into the pot. Cover with lid and wait for 2 minutes before adding sugar, if honey is used, add only before serving.
4. Pour the tea into a cup, it could be serve hot too.
