  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves with stems
  • 1 tablspoon fresh ginger
  • Any kind of honey
  • Frozen blueberries (optional)


  1. Cut off a piece of the ginger about the size of a tablespoon. Slice off the peel with a knife.
  2. Add all the ingredients to a medium sized pot. The amount of honey depends on you. Some people like a lot, some a little, some prefer sugar. Up to you. I use about 3 tablespoons of honey for this amount of tea.
  3. Turn the burner on to high and bring the water to a boil. Once the water starts boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and let it continue on a low boil for 10 minutes.
  4. After 10 minutes, turn off the heat and remove the ginger. Put the lid back on and let it seep for another 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove the leaves through a strainer and serve.

Recipe Notes

For cold tea, allow to cool completely before adding frozen blueberries.
