Homemade Mint Tea

  • Yield: 20 1x

  • 1 pound mint leaves


  1. Clean mint leaves in water, and leave on paper towel to dry off. (Leaving a few smaller stems is ok).
  2. After mint dries off, spread it on a table cloth and leave in a dry, dark place to dry completely. Leave to dry for up to a week. After it dries, crush the leaves and stems into crumbs. Place in a jar.
  3. Serving: seep 3-4 tablespoons of dry mint per one cup of hot water. Discard mint.


1 pound of mint leaves will give you about 1 medium sized jar of dry mint for tea. If you use about 3 tablespoons per cup, you should have about 15-20 servings.
