Main Ingredients

6 cups water

1 cup fresh mint leaves

1/2 cup cup (or more) sugar or honey


1Boil the 6 cups of water in a kettle or large pot. Meanwhile, rinse the mint leaves well.

2If using a kettle, pour boiling water into a larger measuring cup or bowl and add the whole mint leaves. If using a pot to boil water, remove the pot from heat and add the whole mint leaves. Steep the leaves for about 2 1/2 hours, or longer if you prefer stronger tea.

3Use a slotted spoon to remove the leaves.

4Use a fine mesh strain to strain the tea as you pour it into a pitcher/storage container of choice. Stir in the sugar or honey, amount varies by how sweet you like your tea. Start with the smaller amount of sweetener and increase until your taste buds are happy. Classic Meadow Tea is very heavily sugared. Refrigerate and serve cold.
