Mint can be either warming or cooling, and it makes a fantastic "herbal tea" (herbal infusion) in winter or summer. During warmer weather, I love to take advantage of the abundance of fresh peppermint, spearmint and other types of mint leaves in gardens and farmers markets. It's easy to use fresh mint leaves for a delicious hot or iced infusion. Learn how to make fresh mint "tea" with this easy, versatile recipe.
