    Hi,

    I am sure I read on here that somebody makes mint flavoured water using peppermint tea bags.

    I bought some at Asda today....but how do I make the mint water, using boiled and let it go cold or add to cold, but will the flavour diffuse :confused:

    Use boiled water and let it cool :) You can speed up the process by chucking a few ice cubes in.

    You also dont have to
    Make a proper mug ... It will seep strongly into a small amount of water and then easier to cool down (and more concentrated )

    Well a made a mug and drank it hot - had to add sweeteners and it was okay, but not sure I will be a big fan, it was the smell that was off putting more than the taste!
    Then left rest of tea bag in water to have cold later, so hope that is more successful :)

    I love peppermint too, but didn't like the flavoured water, it wasn't so much the taste it was the smell that was off putting :(

    Try to add it cold to a choc shake for a nice mint choc shake variant :) I like mint with vanilla too, someone once compared the taste to a White Aero drink :) maybe add a sweetener to make it more palatable? I prefer raspberry leaf tea bags in strawberry shakes or add a sweetener then cool in the fridge to drink as squash. Some people's tastes change over time without food. Keep experimenting Hun. Good luck :)

    I get them in h&b 1.29 I think and sometimes I get them for 1p when they have their penny sale. Can't go wrong if you try them at that price xx
