Serves: 2 Cooks In: 5 mins


  1. While you are boiling your water divide the fresh mint and rosemary between two cups.
  2. Pour the boiled water into the cups and let sit for about 2 minutes.
  3. You may wish to filter or strain the tea but I prefer to leave everything in there and let the flavour continue to develop.
  4. Stir in 1 teaspoon of maple syrup if you would like some sweetness. The maple syrup adds a rich depth and complexity so it’s definitely worth a swirl.


  • 1 small handful fresh of mint (roughly about 12 leaves), remove stems and tear
  • 1 spring of fresh rosemary, leave it on the stem other wise you’ll end up drinking the little rosemary bits, or you can strain them out at the end.


  • 1tsp per cup of 100% maple syrup
