Fresh Mint Tea
Hi Everyone! I am excited to share this Fresh Mint Tea recipe because it is SO simple and easy to make and so delicious and fresh tasting. This Fresh Mint Tea is one of a few ways I relieve any occasional aches and pains I may feel.
When my natural remedies like this Fresh Mint Tea do not ease any aches or pains that I may have, I reach for Extra Strength TYLENOL®. If you have been following along our Kitchen Renovation series, my lower back and legs hurt so much from leaning over after my husband Eric and I tiled our kitchen floor. It helped my back feel better and allowed me to keep up with my daily schedule which is pretty indispensable when you have a 3 year old and your own business to attend to!
I recommend only taking TYLENOL® as directed and it must be stored in temperature appropriate ways. TYLENOL® temporarily relieves minor aches and pains due to: the common cold, headache, backache, minor pain of arthritis, toothache, muscular aches, premenstrual and menstrual cramps; temporarily reduces fever. TYLENOL® is only for adults and children 12 years and older and use only as directed.
I bought Extra Strength TYLENOL® at Target and I found it near the pharmacy section.
Have you been following along my garden update posts? We recently planted an herb garden and it includes a mint plant. I didn’t use it for this recipe because I just planted it and I want it to mature a little more before I start clipping it.
I had some leftover mint and I will definitely use it to make my Stuffed Grape Leaves recipe.
I first discovered making fresh tea a few years ago when Eric’s father, Michel’s late wife, Marie, made some from their garden in Long Beach Island. It was so good and fresh-tasting that I was hooked. That Summer, I grew my own mint and made my own Fresh Mint Tea ever since.
This Fresh Mint Tea can really be enjoyed all year round. It would be perfect for nursing a cold or just having a refreshing drink.
Imagine enjoying this Fresh Mint Tea on a hot Summer day or at a BBQ or picnic. This is an example of a cooling food/beverage, just like my Watermelon Mint Salad.
I hope you enjoy this Fresh Mint Tea as much as I do!
