Christmas Drink #4 - Lemon Mint Tea

Drink # 4 - Lemon Mint Tea

Looking out the window today to see pouring rain & cold winds reminded me that we don't all get a hot Christmas! 
So here's one that all you folk on the other side of the world who have a cold Christmas can enjoy too!

To serve 2 you'll need:

500ml water
2 Tablespoons black tea leaves
1 small lemon
6ish mint leaves
1 teaspoon agave nectar

Juice the lemon & remove most of the zest. 
Tear the mint leaves.

Add all ingredients to a small pot & gently bring to the boil.

Remove from heat as soon as it has come to the boil or else the tea will taste bitter. 

Strain into a mug.

Add the agave and stir well.

*** Make sure you serve in a Christmas mug ;-)


  1. I keep getting loose leaf tea but don't have a strainer specifically for tea. I think it'll be a necessary buy.

    1. Yes def worth it! They are not expensive either!

  2. This is absolutely wonderful! I love this post so much! I really makes me think of making my own tea recipe so soon. Thanks for sharing this!
