My Favourite After Dinner Hot Drink

26.10.14

I first tried this hot drink at Zizzi (a restaurant) after dinner, as I wasn't feeling very well, and mint helps my stomach when I feel nauseous. I also have it just before I go to bed, for a nice hot drink without the caffeine. I can't believe I had never heard of it, or had it before - when it's so simple!



Fresh mint tea is gorgeous. It's settling, fresh, and rejuvenating. I recommend it fully. 

To make: simple throw some mint leaves in a mug (I love it in a glass mug) and pour some boiling water in. You don't need to take the leaves out to drink it - just drink as soon as it's cool enough!



It does look pretty weird, just mint leaves and water! But trust me, it's gorgeous. When me and Dan (my boyfriend) had this after dinner at Pizza Express, his dad said 'isn't that just boiled leaf juice?!' without realising that that's what tea is!



I just love Uncle Iroh! Source for pictures here [x].

Have you tried it before?

  1. I just plucked a few leaves from my mint plant and put it in my green tea - very refreshing! I'll have to try just mint some other time.
