Pick mint, clean if needed. If cleaning, make sure to dry mint completely, I like to let it sit overnight.
Preheat oven to 170 degrees F.
Place mint in one layer on a baking sheet.
Bake mint for 2-3 hours. Check at the 2 hour mark to see if mint is completely dry. If not, check every 15 minutes.
Once out of the oven take mint and crumble leaves into a container. Store in jar, preferably in a dry dark cabinet shelf.
When using for tea, use one teaspoon of dried mint leaves and steep for 3 minutes in hot water.
