I was sweeping the back porch and patio today and brushed up against the mint that was growing along the side of the patio and it smelled so good. It immediately prompted me to go and make a cup of mint tea. I'm a big coffee drinker, but occasionally I like to have a cup of tea ~ and of course, I like to have it in my favorite tea cup.
Our family would make, what they called, "meadow tea", which would be the same thing as mint tea and I can remember gathering up handfuls of tea leaves, put a pot of water on the stove to boil and then stir in sugar and the leaves to steep. I still make iced tea this way in the summer and it's so refreshing ~ it also reminds me of "the old days" and family get togethers.
