Enjoy your Herbs!

Mint Iced Tea- Sweetened with Stevia


-Approx. two handfuls of mint leaves
-One gallon iced tea (homemade or bought)

To Make:

Boil two to three cups water and add the mint leaves, steep for 15 minutes.  Add the steeped mint to the iced tea.  Add ice if desired before serving.

Optional- sweeten with Stevia:

Boil one to two cups of water and add one handful of stevia leaves.  Steep for no more than 5 minutes (any longer will make it a little bitter).  Add as much of this simple syrup mixture as desired.


Basil Lemonade

-Approx. one handful of torn basil leaves
-One gallon lemonade (homemade or bought)

To Make:

Add the torn basil leaves to the lemonade, let sit overnight (about 12 hours).  Add ice before serving.


I don't know about you, but around here we love our teas!  There is just nothing better than a cool drink on a warm afternoon in the greenhouse.  These two recipes are so simple and so delicious.  Enjoy!
