How to make spearmint tea – healthy herbal tea !!

Spearmint Tea Recipe - Herbal Tea

Spearmint tea is a delightfully sweet and steaming beverage that is perfect for weight loss and nourish your overall health . It is natural, minty, and full of herbal goodness. Because of its cold, refreshing flavor, spearmint leaves are crushed and distilled into essential oils that are used in mouthwash, toothpaste, and even chewing gum. This is why spearmint is significant.

To add up an extra portion of goodness,  I’ve included a special ingredient to this tea that is really beneficial to our health. Yes !! That’s flax seeds.

Because spearmint has so few calories, this makes this tea a healthy drink to have in the mornings or evenings.

You can either use fresh mint leaves or dried leaves I was running out of stock with. So I made it with dried leaves.
