It’s very simple to make and no measuring necessary since you can brew a pot of tea and later dilute with cold water to taste.
Cover the top and let steep for a while - 5 minutes or more is fine. The longer it sets, the stronger it gets. Add honey or sweetener of your choice (or not) to your glass container. Strain and pour; chill... and then drink up!!
Depending on how many leaves you use, the resulting “tea” will have a lot of color in rich reddish golden tones with a hint of green mainly seen at the edge sort of next to the glass. See it? If you are not into color like I am it may just look brown to you. LOL
When we were painting the walls in our house and I said I wanted to paint them “Silver Drop” and “Dolphin Fin", Jan Paul said they were grey! I exclaimed they're NOT grey - they have a hint of green in them!! Ok, so you know where I’m coming from, right?
What about essential oils?
Spearmint essential oil is great for diffusing and since it is so useful I like it too. It supports a healthy digestive system and the aroma is uplifting. I can add a drop of Spearmint Vitality EO to my herbal tea and bump up the flavor. During winter, there are no fresh mint leaves to be had around here, so that is a good time add a drop of essential oil by Young Living and drink it hot!
