Dried mint too weak for tea
I dried about a pound of apple mint last year to make mint tea with over the winter. I picked it early morning and dried it in one of those Ronco food dehydrators I got at a garage sale. When I tried brewing tea I got no mint flavor. Maybe I dried it at too high a temp? Better to air dry herbs?
I have since purchased two new mints (moroccan and mitcham's black) hoping for more potent teas. I don't want to goof my 2009 batch up. Any suggestions appreciated.
