Gillian Carson of My Tiny Plot reminds us all just how civilized drinking tea can be with this couldn't-be-simpler recipe for mint tea. It's especially nice when you can say, like Carson does, "Aaah, that’s nice, and, gosh, aren’t I clever because I actually grew it myself." If you aren't growing mint, try it. It's almost impossible to kill because it is so highly invasive.
As the days get muggier, this refreshing drink (whether made hot or cold, with honey or without) is the perfect thing to have by your side.
