Anyway, the inaugural concoction using our unexpected gift from the ground: fresh mint tea. Simple, fragrant, and warms the bones. I love it. For one serving, add 8 - 10 oz boiling water to 1 scant teaspoon green (or jasmine) tea leaves, and drop in a couple teaspoons worth of mint leaves lightly bruised between your fingers. Let steep for as many minutes as it suits you. Oh-so-good. Enjoy!
Now doesn't this look very warming? So. What will we do next with our minty bounty? Maybe Mojitos!
