Red Clover tea for menopauseal symtoms

Red clover contains isoflavones (estrogen-like compounds) which can mimic the effect of endogenous estrogen. The use of red clover to relieve menopausal symptoms has been shown to be sometimes ineffective, but safe. The isoflavones (like irilone and pratensein) from red clover have been used to treat the symptoms of menopause

1 cup red clover blossoms
2 tablespoons mint ( peppermint)
4 cups water
honey, to sweeten (or use sugar) 
 Inspect flowers and make sure there are no bugs. Also make sure the flowers have not been sprayed.
Bring the water to a boil. Remove from heat.Add clover blossoms and mint. Steep about 10 minutes. Strain. Add honey or sugar to taste. Enjoy!
You can air dry red clover every year and keep in plastic sealed bags that way you never run out. Make iced tea with it using 6 cups water and 2  tea bags, adding the mint and red clover.
