February 12th is Hot Tea Day. For those who know me well, experimenting with herbal tea is a fun passtime.
This recipe for Lavender Mint Tea was inspired by a visit to the RED TEA BOX, an institution on Queen Street, in Toronto. I went with my son and his girlfriend and we drank tea from bone china cups and mis-matched dinnerware. This tea was a favourite served with tea biscuits and raspberry jam.
The combination of lavender and mint is recommended as an aid to digestion.
