To serve 2-4 people

Boil at least a litre of water.  Rinse your teapot with approximately a 1/4 cup of the water.

Add 1 Tablespoon of Naturalus Organic Gunpowder Green Tea, and another 1/4 cup of boiling water.  Leave to steep for 15 swirl the pot to wash and rinse the leaves and pour out the water.  Making sure you leave the Green Tea in the teapot.

Add a large handful of either fresh mint or fresh spearmint to fill the pot to near capacity (If you have handy you can add a handful of fresh absinth leaves or lemon verbena leaves).  Add 1/4 cup of sugar (can be less - to taste)  and fill the pot with boiling water.
