Jack Frost Tea


This tea will have you dreaming of winter even though we are in the last days of summer. I like how this simplistic tea if full of flavor and nutritional benefits! You can enjoy this blend any time of day since it is a tisane (herbal tea/infusion) containing no caffeine.

This is a  light and refreshing, giving you the pick me up you might need, yet can offer a calming effect as well. If you have a indigestion, a headache, nerves and so much more. You can had a touch of honey but I find Jack Frost to be naturally sweet enough on it’s own. 

Jack Frost Tea

1/4 cup  dried peppermint leaves
1/4 cup dried spearmint leaves

Add all the herbs to a glass jar and shake until they are completely mixed. Use one teaspoon of tisane for a single serving (about 8 oz). Add your desired amount to a tea strainer or teapot. Cover with boiling water a let steep for at least 5 minutes or up to 10.

    One question – when you harvest mint, do you use the flowers, too, or only the leaves?

  2. Sounds wonderful! Most of the time, simple is better! 🙂

  3. I just happen to have a large pot of peppermint growing outside, but no spearmint :-(. Well, the peppermint alone is still nice. The fragrance from the mint is wonderful! I found your blog through the Simple Lives Thursday blog hop.

  4. I’m thinking I’ll have to get these ingredients and make this throughout the season!
