Ingredients

  • handful of fresh mint(around ½ a pack)
  • honeyto taste

Method

  1. Take a few leaves of the mint in one hand and sharply clap your other hand on top, then drop the leaves into a teapot or cafetiere. Repeat with the rest of the mint, saving a few small sprigs for each glass as a garnish.

  2. Fill up the pot with boiling water and let it infuse for 2-3 mins or until the liquid starts to take on a slight pale yellow/green hue. Strain the tea into cups or heatproof glasses and sweeten with honey to taste. Drop the reserved mint into the cups to decorate if you like.
