Lemon Mint Tea
We’re hiding a surprise with this tea. Can you guess what it is? It has nothing to do with the peppermint or spearmint. It has to do with the lemon part…
Surprise! There is no lemon in our lemonmint tea. Rather this herbal infusion effuses lemon via lemon balm, lemon verbena, and lemongrass; three very citrusy herbs that offer depth to contrast with the peppermint and spearmint. You can add a wedge of lemon if you want, but we don’t think you’ll miss it.
We love this loose leaf herbal tea brewed strong and hard, maybe about 10-15 minutes. After that we add heaps of sugar, some more water, and then serve it over ice. (And then fresh lemon, because we’re persnickety like that.)
