Apparently I’m in the middle of a Cold Non-Alcoholic Drinks series, so I hope you’re enjoying it. Now that summer is winding down, I’m actually enjoying it more as we do more things outside. This past weekend we went on a little boat cruise to the Nubble Lighthouse.
I swear Erm was just as excited as I was.
Anyone who grows herbs knows that mint. grows. like. wildfire. I found this easy and delicious recipe and decided to try it. In my mind, Martha and I sip this tea in the parlor after coming in from a horseback ride on her farm and before preparing a meal with seasonal vegetables from her farm.
In real life, I make it to take with me while I run errands.
This is what you need:
That’s it! And you could probably use simple syrup instead of the agave.
Put a large bunch of mint, stems and all, in bowl or teapot with lemon zest.
Add 2 tablespoons agave
Top with 4 cups of water and stir to combine
Let it sit for 5 minutes, strain, and that’s it! Refreshing mint tea. I haven’t tried it hot, but it makes a really great, natural iced tea. Perfect for summer!
