Mint Water Detox

How are you doing on this lovely day? For the last two weeks, I have had the pleasure of learning and experimenting with mint leaves. Initially, I bought a mint plant to support my mojito cravings, but it soon became the source of my mint tea.

While I have been drinking mint tea for a long time now, I have often wonder what are the benefits of just regular mint water. So I took to the great fountain of information and weeded out the conspiracy from the statements supported by research and a knack for curiosity.
