Growing up in Pennsylvania fresh mint grew everywhere. In ditches alongside the road, in gardens, in pots and always in the kitchen gardens of the neighboring Amish women.
The smell still has a way of taking me back to the days of riding my bike on our dirt road while jumping off and standing on the side as a buggy or car went by.
Even now, 40 years later, the smell and the taste of Meadow Tea still puts a smile on my face. It’s all natural, has no caffeine and is the perfect drink any time of the year.
It’s easy to make and you can use any type of fresh mint growing in your garden, or what you buy in the produce section of your favorite grocer.
