I got some mint leaves at the store for a recipe and we have extra left over so I was wondering if anyone knows how to make tea with it. My searching only led to lemonade mint tea, things like that, and DH just wants plain old tea with it. Do I have to dry it somehow or can he just stick it in his hot water and make tea with it? He did buy some tea the other day that was plain mint leaves, no tea leaves in it, so I think he would like the taste. Anyone know if I have to dry it and how? Or should I just try it in hot water?

do you want just the mint as in herbal tea or tea with mint "mint tea"? either way you can use the fresh leaves (no drying necessary).<br><br>
if it's just herbal tea you want, do as pp said.<br><br>
for the north african style mint tea, use green gunpowder tea, steep for three minutes, then add crushed mint and sugar. (it's usually served very sweet.)<br><br>
i adore the mint herbal tea (why don't we have a word for this?!) and it's really good for an upset tummy.
