There are many options to use up all the mint from the garden. The easiest way and my increasing go-to on a weekly basis is this garden mint tea.
I think you’re likely either in camp “I have this all the time” or “does that even count as real tea?” Personally, I’m in the “I have it all the time!” It’s super simple, refreshing, and quenches your thirst! Give it a try and let me know what you think! Or let me know how you make your mint tea!
