Mint teas are delicious iced or hot.
Peppermint: is used for coughs, heartburn, nervous headaches and is goodfor digestion.
Spearmint: is good for coughs, etc., and in summer is cooling andrefreshing and is a good base for mixing with fruit juices or vegetablejuices. I make Iced Spearmint Tea with Strawberry Nectar for specialoccasions.
Some combinations using mints are:
Licorice tasting. It is good for the appetite and digestion and as a tonic.I use it with anise hyssop often, and/or licorice basil
Anise Hyssop Leaves
Slight licorice taste. It is good for coughs. Anise hyssop and Korean mint make a good combination; also with fennel. Also, part of a dried flower of anise hyssop is enough to scent and sweeten a pot of tea.
Cinnamon basil by itself is delicious, also combinations of lemon herbs including lemon basil; or licorice basil along or with some licorice tasting herbs
Lemon verbena and lemon balm - a relaxing tea
Lemon balm, catnip and chamomile
