      Thanks! I needed proportions for a straight mint tea, without black or green tea in it, and this worked perfectly.

      Wow! This was great! I threw the mint leaves in a tea kettle, boiled, turn off stove, let cool a little to allow to steep even more, added honey to the pot, then added slices of lemon. It's a hit! Thanks!

      I love this! I would never have thought of adding honey to the mint tea even though now that I think of it, it is a common flavor for cough drops. Made for Summer Bargain Basement tag 2009.
