I have been growing a Chocolate mint plant ( Mentha x piperita) in which you can make tea with it, so how do I do this?

Chocolate mint tea

I love the taste of chocolate mint tea. I've got the recipe with me.
Put tea, sugar, and mint in a teapot. Bring 2 cups of water to boil, let sit 2 minutes, then pour into pot. Let steep about 5 minutes. Strain into teacups.
