Tuesday, March 14, 2006 Honey Peppermint Tea

Here's a really soothing tea to try if you (like me! boohoo) have been battling a cold or flu. Especially if you grow mint in the garden, you'll want to keep this recipe to use over and over again. It's even yummy served cold over ice in the summertime! Really refreshing...just add a slice of lemon and you're set.

Honey-Peppermint Tea
2 tablespoons good quality honey (I really love clover honey)
1 lemon, juice of
Handful of fresh peppermint leaves, washed and torn
Boiling water

Put the honey, lemon juice and peppermint leaves into a nice big mug. Pour boiling water over top and let steep for at least 5 minutes. Strain and enjoy your soothing cold and flu tea!

* Health Tip: Try different types of honey. I'm really hooked on clover honey right now...but there are all sorts of varieties to try. Different flavors of honey just mean the bees were snacking on different types of flowers. :)

* Lemon squeezing tip: To get ALL that great juice out of the lemon, I run the lemon under warm water for a few seconds. Then just cut the lemon in half and squeeze - you'll get more juice out.
