Mint of your choice, a combination is very good
Sweetener of your choice
There really are no specific directions for making meadow tea. Just gather a bunch of your favorite mint. Wash the leaves and stems and add to a pot of almost boiling water. Turn the water off and allow to steep until the house smells wonderful. Strain the tea thru several layers of cheese cloth or a well washed tee-shirt. Add the sweetener of your choice and enjoy.
As a child, my grandmother would send us to the edge of the woods to gather mint for this tea. It was a real treat on a hot summer day. It is still a very popular drink amoung the Amish and Mennonites in our area. You can find jars for sale at many of the popular farmer’s markets.
