Hey there, I thought I would do one quick #30dayswild post before I go on my jollies to Norfolk tommorrow. Its a bit of a cheat because I actually collected the mint yesterday afternoon. But I did make the tea this morning. I had a refreshing wild moment. 🙂
All I did was steep the leaves in hot ( not boiling) water for about 5 minutes and pour into a teacup. I don’t like my mint tea to sweet so didn’t add sugar. Water Mint tea has a pepperminty taste and I must say, I really enjoyed it.
Look out for Water Mint by streams. You will probably smell it’s minty fragrance first! At the moment you can identify Water Mint by its green leaves tinted with purple. From July there will be lilac flowers to admire too. 🙂
If you haven’t heard about The Wildlife Trusts #30dayswild yet, check out their website. They are challenging everyone to get involved , by doing something Wild every day in June. This could be anything, from taking the dog on a different walk route, sowing a patch of wild flower seeds, eating a picnic up a tree or identifying a bird call…..
As I’m off to the Norfolk Coast tommorrow, I am really looking forward to spotting wildlife there that I don’t get to see in Lancashire. I look forward to updating my blog and reading everybody elses Wild posts on my return. 🙂
Bye for now.x
