Fresh Sensation #2


Mint tea has had countless benefits for over 10000 years and it still has. It is a good stress reliever for these busy holidays and helps you relax. We all know how hectic it is when your little cousins are screaming across the halls or coming in with their dirty shoes and walk on your new white carpet * snow why didn’t you come this year sigh*.  These benefits aren’t only related to this specific tea brand but it is actually related to the mint leaves itself**.

The tea I’m reviewing today is the Evolet mint tea. I am not really familiar with other flavours of this brand as I only know this one. Here at Hause Marustan we really like to drink mint tea and drink from several other brands.

1. Buy some mint leaves at your local grocery story (if you’re in The Netherlands you can find it at your local Toko, Turkish and Moroccan store).
2. If you’ve bought them wash them thoroughly and then boil some hot water.
3. After it’s boiled add water to 4-6 mint leaves and enjoy!

Can’t wait to see you tomorrow for #3
