Mint Lemon

(Nane Limon)

Mint Lemon
1 tsp mint, dried
Piece of lemon rind
1 cup boiling water

3-4 lemon wedges
Honey, optional

Place the mint and lemon rind in a small Turkish tea pot-brewer (demlik). Pour the boiling water over the leaves into the brewer. Cover and let it brew for about 7-8 minutes. Then pour the brewed Mint Lemon into tea glass using a small tea strainer. Serve Mint Lemon with the lemon wedges or few drops of lemon juice. Mint Lemon has a sweet-smelling taste and don't need to sweeten it:)

The girls have cramps or upset stomach while they grow up, Mint Lemon is perfect for them:)

When I had an upset stomach or digestion problem, my mother or other elders used to say "I will brew Mint Lemon for you, you will be fine". Indeed, it always gave me the comfort; no pain, no nausea, no gas and also brought a nice sleep:) I've brewed plenty of Mint Lemon for my children, like my mother:)

I have also added the recipe to my archive. Therefore, my children would make this healthy drink for their children when they need it:)

* As with all natural herbal teas, Mint Lemon, certainly not to be boiled. If there is a left over tea do not re-heat and use again! Because they can do more harm than good to you.

Benefits of Mint:
-Mint in vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3 mingling.

-To prevent the smell of mouth you can drink Mint Lemon:)
