Mint Tea

Mint is used as an effective remedy against many health problems. In case of bloating and gas, it works wonders. Mint is a calming and soothing herb that has been used for thousands of years to aid with upset stomach or indigestion. Mint is thought to increase bile secretion and encourage bile flow, which helps to speed and ease digestion.


  • Roughly tear fresh mint leaves with your hands and place them in a small strainer placed over a teapot or glass bowl. 
  • Bring the water to a boil and pour over the leaves. Cover the teapot or bowl and let the leaves steep for at least 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Gently bruise the mint leaves with the back of a spoon to release the oils, then remove the strainer pressing on the leaves to extract as much liquid as possible. 
  • Pour into teacups or mug and sweeten with honey to taste if desired.
