- Take 5 fresh mint leaves on your hand and clap with the other hand to bruise them a bit and drop into a tall glass or a mug
- Add boiling water and cover with a lid. Keep for 5mins for it to brew. The water will turn pale yellowish-green!
- Sip slowly!
For a sweeter version
- Leave for 8-10min or until the water is cool enough and add a teaspoon of honey and stir well. This is because honey should never be added when water is hot.
- Sip slowly and feel the difference!
