gardening inside our home as well as outside.
I just can't seem to get enough of planting and growing and enjoying.
So with Summer just around the corner I have been thinking
of Sweet Mint Tea, doesn't that just sound so good...
Well, you know mint is very hardy and when grown outside it can become
quite invasive, even taking over a petite garden
so this cute and sweet smelling little herb is staying put.
In this cup, my garden space is prime property.
In time my mint will bloom
her blossoms may be any shade of
white to purple.
In Greek Mythology, mint is known as the herb of hospitality.
Isn't this so nifty how Sweet Mint Tea and hospitality go together, sort of like..
biscuits and butter
cocoa and marshmallows.
Well last Summer I really got into tea and this is one of the recipes
which I so enjoyed-so did the hubby.

bags and mint. Steep for 20 minutes.

Just thinking of sipping on this tea while the
