Mint Apple Tea

Mentha suaveolens. 
Soft, fuzzy, gray-green, apple-scented foliage with edible, whitish or pink flowers in summer.  Leaves are used in jellies, sauces for lamb dishes, herbal teas and iced drinks.  Also used as a garnish or candied.  Plant in rich, moist soil. Hardy to Zone 3

It’s easy to make herbal tea and the flavor combinations are endless. Mix several herbs together for your own special blend or stick with your favorite herb. Tear 1 to 2 tablespoons of fresh leaves into pieces and place in a teapot. Pour boiling water over herbs; gently bruise herbs with back of spoon to release the oils. Let steep for 5-10 minutes, strain, pour, sweeten and enjoy.
