The Best Mint Tea

Freshly grown mint has so many excellent properties to it if consumed!
It is easy on the stomach and relaxes the intestine. Great for trapped wind!

I could sit and list lots of excellent reasons to use mint. But trust me - it's good for you!

So how do you consume it? From a fresh herb, pick off a few of the top leaves and infuse in water to make tea. This is far superior to dried tea bags (although they are still great).

Anyway, after a trip to the wonderful  Leon restaurant (Which I cannot recommend highly enough for customer service and amazing healthy food - even gluten free goodies) I was thrilled to find they serve what they call a mint "steeper" which is loads of full of flavour leaves in a cup.

After growing mint in my herb garden at home, I have decided to regularly make tea and I have an excellent tip for you:
Pick the mint tips fresh, place them in a mini cafetiere and top up with water. After infusing for a few minutes, plunge and pour. Then you aren't picking bits of leaf from your teeth and it's so delicious!

Try it!

Lightbulb moments!


That's it!

I know!

Why didn't I think of that earlier?

IT's a SIGN!

Sounds familiar doesn't it?!

Occasionally, you will wake up in the middle of the night, sit BOLT upright and remember something you had been trying to think of all day long!

You walk into a room, forget what you went in there for and to quote Lee Evans (genius) you say out loud "What did I come in here for?"
"Why are you asking you? You DON"T KNOW!!" Say's Lee. Quite right.
then as you turn to walk away, you remember, just as you have stopped thinking about it.

Well, in the world of the Law of Attraction, this is easy to explain, yet would take me a while to explain in a blog.

Suffice to say, it's good to know that sometimes you just need to 'go with the flow'.

Did it come from nowhere?
Did it seem like an idea you had thought about before?
Does it seem like the RIGHT thing to do?
Does your gut say "Go for it"?
Maybe you wonder why you didn't think of it sooner.

The big question:
Does it feel easy?

If it does, it is most likely the right thing to do.

So, when that lightbulb goes off, gets you very excited and you feel very positive.....I ask.....Why not?

GO For it!!!

What's stopping you?

Some power, stronger than us, has lead you there. Do it! Enjoy it.

Loads of love
