Recently I bought a smorgasbord of mint varieties, such as ginger mint, basil mint and water mint. The pineapple mint has done especially well, cascading its variegated leaves over the edge of the container it’s in.
Mixing it with pineapple sage, orange mint and spearmint produced a fruity iced tea without any fruit. There was the “idea” of pineapple in it, enough so that sipping it made me feel like I should have been hanging around a pool…instead of doing my taxes!
Pineapple-Mint Iced Tea
About 2 TBS each: spearmint, pineapple mint, pineapple sage, orange mint
2 cups boiling water
stevia or other sweetener, to taste
4 cups iced water
Pour boiling water over herbs and stevia in a tea pot. Cover. Let steep 30 minutes. Strain. Add iced water. Sip and enjoy.
Then get back to the real world and work on your taxes. Ugh!
