Fabulous Mint Tea

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Gaelige Coinnaigh

Mint is a great herb that you can grow at home and have ready when you need it... It needs little water and grows like a weed (in fact, it is). Just get some fresh mint at the market, clip the ends of the stems, and place them in an opaque cup with some water (water submerging the stem, not the leaves on the top) until it begins to grow roots (4-5 days, changing water every day or 2). When roots are long enough, place in soil. You'll soon have plenty of mint!

This was okay. We will try this again without the lemon - the lemon just did not mix well with the mint.
