How would I duplicate this at home.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
While shopping at Whole Foods in Madison way back in February I found this water called metromint. It was great!! Went to their website and actually found it locally. But its $1.39 for a 1/2 liter bottle.

I really like the spearmint flavor. The ingredient label states water and mint.
I figure in about 5 weeks I can find a spearmint plant or two and let some leaves steep in water in my refrigerator.

But what could I use for the spearmint in the meantime. An essential oil or something of that nature? Any suggestions would be great!

Thanks!!

I drink a spearmint tea, and all that is listed on the box is: spearmint leaves.

I wonder if that would work? Steep a teabag in cold water perhaps?

There are quite a few places on the internet with peppermint oil, probably in health/herbal stores too? Not sure how much you would add or how exactly to prepare.

Sounds pretty tasty though!

If you steep the dried leaves in the water, you'll just end up with iced spearmint tea.
The process used in the water I imagine is the same one they use for liquor called infusing.

and I do imagine that you can use spearmint oil until you can get fresh sprigs.
