Show Description

The best peppermint comes from the northwestern United States. The pure, moist mountain air of the spring and early summer growing season gives this peppermint some of the highest volatile oil counts of any member of the mint family. It literally takes your breath away and makes your eyes water.

Peppermint is an herb and contains no caffeine. Quite often peppermint is consumed after meals as the oils stimulate the stomach and helps relieve gas pains.

Additionally, it has been reported and written that peppermint sweetens the breath and calms the digestive system, plus it helps heartburn, stomach ache and nausea. An interesting and tingling way to use peppermint is to place a handful of peppermint leaves in your bath water which will lower your body temperature - perfect for cooling fevered skin or after working on a hot summerÕs day.

As a hot tea it is cool and refreshing, as an iced tea the menthol content produces a pleasantly chilling taste sensation.

Extra Info:

Peppermint is believed to be a hybrid species that evolved from spearmint and watermint. It was used as a stewing herb by ancient Hebrews and it has been found in 3000 year old Egyptian tombs. 2000 years ago the Japanese cultivated peppermint as a source of menthol.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.

Ingredients:

Organic Peppermint Leaves,

Origin:

Washington State, USA

I have never been a big fan of peppermint tea but I have fallen in love with this one. It is a very soothing, flavorful blend that is not an overpowering peppermint taste. I also bought it for family members for Christmas presents a year ago and received raved reviews. Very enjoyable!

So good and calming. I drink during the day too and seems to stimulate my mind at work. Love this tea as caffeine doesn't work well for me.
