A Sweet and Savory Mint Tea recipe
This aromatic herb, which proliferates in warm months, can do far more than freshen up a table. Mint can do wonders for digestion, soothe the skin, and sweeten the breath.
2 tablespoons agave nectar
4 ounces fresh mint (1 large bunch), leaves and stems
2 strips lemon zest, about ¼ by 2 inches each
In a teapot or large measuring cup, combine agave nectar, mint, and lemon zest. Top with 4 cups boiling water and stir to combine. Steep for 5 minutes and strain. Serve hot or over ice.
