Freshly grown mint has so many excellent properties to it if consumed!
It is easy on the stomach and relaxes the intestine. Great for trapped wind!
I could sit and list lots of excellent reasons to use mint. But trust me – it’s good for you!
So how do you consume it? From a fresh herb, pick off a few of the top leaves and infuse in water to make tea. This is far superior to dried tea bags (although they are still great).
Anyway, after a trip to the wonderful Leon restaurant (Which I cannot recommend highly enough for customer service and amazing healthy food – even gluten free goodies) I was thrilled to find they serve what they call a mint “steeper” which is loads of full of flavour leaves in a cup.
After growing mint in my herb garden at home, I have decided to regularly make tea and I have an excellent tip for you:
Pick the mint tips fresh, place them in a mini cafetiere and top up with water. After infusing for a few minutes, plunge and pour. Then you aren’t picking bits of leaf from your teeth and it’s so delicious!
