    Baby Kato's Note:

    This is a sassy mint tea. I hope that you will enjoy this wonderful treat. You can use different types of fresh mint in this tea if you like, chocolate mint would work really well.

      I LIKE it! Spicy though I cut down the cayenne somewhat (also because I am nursing). I used a red raspberry leaf tea bag for health reasons and to avoid a caffeine headache. I made this much healthier by sweetening with less raw honey after it had cooled down a bit. Since red raspberry leaf tea takes about 15 minutes to steep I added the cinnamon stick as well and then poured the mixture over a whole glass of ice to dilute after it was steeped in order to drink it immediately. I might make it again. Made for PAC Spring 12.

      What a wonderful treat! Delicious blend of flavors. I used a strong peppermint from the garden. I love cayenne pepper and eyeballed the amount, probably using a little more than the 1/4 tsp asked due to perrsonal preference. I also used artificial sweetener to make it sugar free as personal preference. I will be drinking this frequently throughout the fall, and well into winter, although I will be trying it with dried mint once the garden is done.
