I drank a lot of fresh mint leaves from the garden over the summer, and have had dried leaves sitting in my cupboard for a while now. I’ve been feeling a little stressed since it’s the end of my term and I’ve been heading for the mint stash.

Yum! This isn’t as good as when I had it with fresh leaves… the flavor is so much more intense. I put in about a teaspoon which I think was a good amount. No sweetner or anything added. It’s just flat out mint, and it really tastes so delicious. It’s really soothing my stomach as well.

I wonder if mint is re-steepable…. ;)

I never have had much luck with resteeping herbs. Not like resteeping tea leaves, anyway. I’d be interested in knowing how this fairs for you.

Well, i just resteeped it and it came out pretty good :) The mint flavor isn’t as strong as the first cup so I actually like it a bit better.

Bio

Daily tea drinker.

Whether it’s hot or cold outside, there is a cup of tea in my hands. I love all teas, but white and oolong are my favorites. I tend to find one tea and drink it every day until I run out (or get sick of it).

There’s not much variety in what I drink, so tasting notes are few and far inbetween. I try to log every tea I drink at least once… and if I spend to much time perusing the many teas all you lovely people drink I would surely go broke trying to drink them all.
