My husband has got really into gardening recently, so we are venturing into growing our own produce. We’ve started easy with some herbs, strawberry and tomato plants.
We got quite excited when we spotted some Mentha piperita, which is a form of mint with a chocolately smell and taste. It’s like a plant version of After Eights!
We’ve decided that it makes excellent homemade mint tea!
Just pick some leaves and pour over boiling water with a tiny pinch of sugar….mmmmmm.
Then put up your feet and grab a great novel or pop on your favourite movie.
