How to Make a Delicious Mint Tea

Ingredients & Discussion

Mint tea is a delicious and refreshing beverage that can be enjoyed hot or cold. It is best to buy loose-leaf mint tea, as it typically has a fresher, more flavorful taste than pre-packaged teabags. You’ll need roasted green tea and five to ten fresh mint leaves for each cup of tea. You could choose any type of mint like spearmint or peppermint. Other optional additions are a slice of lemon or a teaspoon of sugar.

Instructions for Making Mint Tea

  1. Heat two cups of filtered water to just below boiling (185°F).
  2. Place one teaspoon of tea leaves into a teapot or cup.
  3. Add the mint leaves and stir for a few seconds.
  4. Pour the hot water over the tea leaves and mint and cover the teapot or cup.
  5. Allow the tea to steep for five minutes.
  6. Strain the tea leaves and mint leaves and discard them.
  7. Add any desired extras such as a slice of lemon or a teaspoon of sugar.
  8. Pour into cups and enjoy.

Tips for Making the Perfect Cup of Mint Tea

  • Do not over-steep the tea, as it can become bitter.
  • Adding a few drops of honey will sweeten the tea and make it even more flavorful.
  • For a stronger, more intense taste, add an additional teaspoon of tea and/or mint leaves.

Mint tea is a wonderfully refreshing beverage that’s easy to make. With just a few simple ingredients and steps, you’ll be able to enjoy a delicious cup of mint tea in no time. Enjoy!
