Mint is an Ayurvedic wonder herb, particularly for the way it lays excessive fire symptoms to rest. Mint cools the body, chills the mind, gently aids digestion, and—when taken with regularity—may offer relief to various forms of inflammation, including headaches and arthritis. Its refreshing properties are helpful to the extra-warm blooded. Mint tea is perfect for pitta and can be taken hot or at room temperature throughout the day. Use fresh mint whenever you have the chance.

Ingredients

  • 2 C water
  • 3 to 4 sprigs fresh mint or 2 mint tea bags

Preparation

Bring water to a boil. Let cool for 1 minute, then pour it into your favorite mug, add the mint or mint teabags, and steep for 5 minutes. If you’re using the fresh mint, you can let it steep all day and just keep adding more water. If you’re using tea bags, remove them and enjoy.
