Mint Maple syrup tea
I made this one up...sort of. I have my new obsession with using what we have on hand. I took several sprigs from my mint plant, crushed them, put them in my tea diffuser, poured boiling water over them to steep (yes I used water this time), and then added 1/4 cup maple syrup to the mint concentrate, added a bit more water and refrigerated for several hours. Yum. So far we have used spearmint, chocolate mint, and peppermint leaves. All yum. Of course we are spoiled with a plethora of maple syrup which makes this recipe less painful. Stop by for a cup!
