Peppermint Tea

Saturday, May 23, 2009

Anyone who has read very much of my writings about healthy food knows that I love my healthy lemonade recipe. While it is my very favorite drink, another popular one is peppermint tea.

Peppermint tea is one of the few things you can drink aside from water that qualifies as a whole food!

It’s really simple to make, too. You can use your coffee maker and it’s super easy. Use a regular coffee liner. Use a half cup of dry peppermint (you can purchase by the pound from Frontiers, or grow your own) in the filter basket, and fill up your 10-cup coffee maker with water. Brew it. Pour it into a jar or pitcher and stick it in the refrigerator. Voila! Tea is ready.

And if you would prefer your tea to be sweetened, you can use regular stevia or the peppermint flavor liquid stevia! Either way, it’s good for you, good for your digestion, and very refreshing. (Cheap, too.)

You can use this same basic idea with any kind of tea. I have used 3-4 tea bags in the coffee filter basket (per 10 cup carafe) of many types of herbal teas. They all turn out very yummy!

We all love peppermint tea at our house. I'd love to grow it but can't find plants/seeds - so we'll settle for ordering it. Great idea here. Thanks!
