1. Rinse the mint leaves.
2. Infuse tea in freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes.
3. Fill glasses with mint sprigs.
4. Hold the teapot or pot high and pour the tea into the glasses in one continuous stream to create a froth on top.
5. Sweeten with Sugar Stick as required.
6. Serve the tea hot and enjoy!
- Traditionally, the tea is poured from a height to create a frothy top, but this is optional.
- The tea can also be served over ice for a refreshing treat in hot weather.
Pro Tip :
Freeze a batch of tea in an ice cube tray in advance. This allows your tea to be good to the last drop without getting diluted in flavour when the ice melts.
