Preparation Time: 5 minutes
- 1 sprig of mint (about 7-8 leaves)
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 2~3 g Rosebuds
- ~8 oz. of boiling water
Method Rinse the mint leaves well under running cool water. The goal here is to rid them of any dirt or other debris that might be lingering on the plants, so take your time and make sure that they’re clean. Once the leaves are washed, set them aside to let them dry for a couple of minutes.
Step 1. Place the dried mint leaves in your teapot or cup.
Step 2. Add boiling water and steep for 3 minutes to draw out all of the flavors from the leaves. Strain the tea into another mug or teapot.
Step 3. Add honey, rosebuds, and the mint leaves (if you like it strong) to your original mug/teapot again, then pour in the strained tea. Mix well for a minute or two until all of the ingredients are combined.
Step 4. Enjoy your delicious cup of rose mint tea! The longer your steep the stronger your tea will be, so experiment a little until you hit your desired flavor.
- Top with whipped cream and a couple of mints leaves for a beautiful presentation.
- Garnish with chopped pistachios or almonds for a little extra crunch -Serve with shortbread cookies or tea biscuits for dipping
Try pairing it with your favorite marmalades or jams to add some sweetness. Rose mint tea is also delicious with savory dishes such as sandwiches and salads, so feel free to experiment!
