Serves: 2 Cooks In: 5 mins

Method

  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.

Ingredients

  • 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.

Optional

  • 1tsp per cup of 100% maple syrup
