Orgin of Recipe: Offered by Kailahna Tenesah …who learned this from their Grandmother

Type of Dish: All Indigenous Ingredients


  • 2-5 mint leaves (the more leaves, the stronger it will be)
  • 1 cup of water
  • Note: Preferably spring water. The chlorine and flouride in today
  • Directions:
    Gather some small sticks and a few larger ones.
    Start a fire. You can do it the old way, if you want to be lazy, use a lighter. (Please do not do this step inside).
    Place a small pot over the fire. Don’t have a small pot? Make one from birch bark by rolling the bark into a circular shape.
    Leave the water over (but not touching) the fire until it boils.
    While the water is heating, crush the mint leaves.
    Place the crushed mint leaves in the now boiling water and stir.
    Drink and enjoy!
    Or, if you really feel that it’s necesary, you can boil the water on a stove.
    Note: This recipe came in handy during the ice storm this winter. We had no power and a tree plowed over our house, so we spent the time in a tent. This tea will definately warm you up, and keep you warm. Enjoy!
