Mint Chocolate Tea

Mentha x piperita 
This herb has fragrant, bronze, peppermint-foliage and edible, pinkish lavender flowers in summer.  Used to flavor jellies, herb teas and iced drinks.  Also used as a garnish or candied.  Plant in rich, moist soil.

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.
