If you have mint growing in the garden you can turn it into home made mint tea! So easy to do and without the heavy price tag of purchasing it through a tea store. The added benefit is that if you don’t spray your mint, it’s organic! This keeps in the cupboard for around 6 months.

Ingredients (makes 250 gram jar)

  • 5 bunches mint
  • 5 elastic bands
  • 1 glass jar


  1. Pick and wash 5 bunches of mint.
  2. Dry them and then secure a few stems together with the elastic bands.
  3. Hang upside down until they are dry (usually a week or so).
  4. Once dried, remove the leaves from the stems and empty into a blender. Pulse gently a few times to cut the leaves slightly.
  5. Store in a glass jar out of direct sunlight.

  • I also read just the other day about adding a mint leaf or two, to a cup of green tea for a health and flavour boost
