|Mint tea has some insecticidal qualities so watering your plants with it can help with pest control. I wouldn't overdo it though. An occasional watering is fine but don't use mint tea exclusively for watering your plants. If the solution is very strong you might want to dilute it a bit before using it on your houseplants.
