Ingredients

  • About 1/2 cup dry Peppermint leaves.
  • 3 or 4 cups very hot water.
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons of honey.

Directions

Boil about 3 or 4 cups of water.
Add the peppermint leaves and shut the heat off.
Let the tea steep for about 5 minutes.
Pour through a tea strainer.
Add the honey and pour into cups.
The tea can be made from fresh leaves or dryed leaves.

Note: My mom used to make this for us when we had colds or a upset stomach. We used to get it along the North Platte river in Wyoming. I found it along the Rapid Creek, so I know you can find it along any creek, river, or lake.
