Mint Tea

When it's hot outside, I prefer light-colored teas and tisanes (I drink them both hot and iced!).

I recently brewed a pot of fresh-mint herbal "tea". I picked a handful of mint leaves growing outside my back door, rinsed, and poured boiling water over them. I steeped the brew until I thought it had the right amount of mintiness. It was delicious and oh-so-pretty in the glass teapot.

Sounds great. And what a pretty teapot!

Lovely photograph! I can almost smell the mint!

I love mint tea, especially in the afternoon. It's supposed to be a stimuli for creativiTEA. Don't know about that, but I feel very clever and creative when I drink my mint tea from those darling little Moroccan tea glasses. They are becoming popular - I've seen them in many shops, and they are sold on Amazon, as well.

Hugs to you and DH,
