The advantage of fresh mint tea is that it tastes delicious, is very easy to make (and a great way to use mint leaves)
In addition there many different varieties of mint and each will make it’s own unique flavoured tea.
For example there is:
- Apple Mint
- Orange Mint

Fresh mint makes all the difference
Fresh mint leaves add real flavour to many recipes, like the fresh mint tea recipe.
You can buy Fresh Mint in many shops (for example you can buy it on Amazon)
But it’s also very easy to grow at home.
For example the After eight mint on the right.
- Was planted from a plug plant
- Grown in a pot (to stop it taking over the garden)
- And ready to use withing 30 days.
- And will keep growing and growing
If you want to grow your own mint at home then all you need is a plug plant and a pot.
But do note the different mint types all have a unique flavour (Orange mint, Spearmint, Apple Mint, etc.).
