Mint Infusion

Did you know that a mint infused water is refreshing in summer and comforting in winter? Furthermore, mint was once used by the Augustinians Sisters in the preparation of different remedies. This plant was even grown in the apothecary’s square. I propose you one of my favorite infusions! Vitality and pleasure assured.
