    Chai-na'na ~ Mint Tea

    A modern interpretation of an age-old recipe, I find this drink is better using a mixture of Earl Grey and English Breakfast tea leaves. Usually served after a meal, the mint helps with the digestion process and also helps the body and mind to relax.
    Mint is also believed to give energy to tired organs and thus is the ideal beverage with which to end the day. A quicker method for this recipe is to make ordinary tea and add a few fresh mint leaves to the tea cup just before serving.

    2 cups boiling water
    30 mint leaves
    sugar to taste
    1 tablespoon Earl Grey tea leaves
    1 teaspoon English breakfast tea

    Boil water, sugar and mint for around five minutes. Meanwhile, put tea leaves into vacuum flask, pour boiled mixture over the tea leaves and allow to infuse for 20 minutes.
