Mint Tea 薄荷茶




This was made during the peak of summer. It was more than 90F today and I had absolutely no appetite for anything. I walked out to my garden during hot afternoon. Clipped a few stems of sweet peppermint to make this mint tea, and sweetened with honey. 

With a good book at hand... my afternoon is just perfect !

这两个星期我们这里白天都是90F以上了,热得都不想吃饭。每天傍晚就是一盘沙拉或者几片西瓜对付着过。这天气却特别适合一些消暑的植物生长,我种的两盆薄荷,都长得很茂盛。在炎热的午后,做一杯冰冻的薄荷茶,配上一小块绿豆饼,手握一本好书。哪儿都不想去呢!

根据互动百科有关薄荷的记录:

“薄荷辛凉性发汗解热药,治流行性感冒、头疼、目赤、身热、咽喉、牙床肿痛等症。处用可治神经痛、皮肤瘙痒、皮疹和湿疹等。平常以薄荷代茶,清心明目。其叶长于发汗,梗偏于理气。 ”
