Mint, rosemary and maple tea

Serves: 2

Prep Time: 5 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 small handful fresh of mint (roughly about 12 leaves), remove stems and tear
  • 1 spring of fresh rosemary, leave it on the stem other wise you’ll end up drinking the little rosemary bits, or you can strain them out at the end.

Optional

  • 1tsp per cup of 100% maple syrup

Almost every day is a tea day for me, I’m always brewing up some concoction, but this Mint rosemary and maple tea is my absolute favourite!

This magical mint tea recipe is intensely fresh and full of flavour – it’s naturally caffeine free so you can drink it at any time of day or night. I love to make a big pot to share after dinner with friends; the wonderful anti-inflammatory properties in mint aid digestion as well as having an incredible detoxifying effect on the body, so you can sip yourself beautiful as you chat away.

Method

  1. While you are boiling your water divide the fresh mint and rosemary between two cups.
  2. Pour the boiled water into the cups and let sit for about 2 minutes.
  3. You may wish to filter or strain the tea but I prefer to leave everything in there and let the flavour continue to develop.
  4. Stir in 1 teaspoon of maple syrup if you would like some sweetness. The maple syrup adds a rich depth and complexity so it’s definitely worth a swirl.
