A herb prized for its medicinal benefits and distinctive flavour, peppermint is a naturally occurring hybrid of spearmint and water mint.. Unlike other mints, peppermint contains healing oils and powerful therapeutic ingredients such as menthol, as well as some 40 other compounds.
As a native of the mediterranean peppermint leaves have been used in Ancient Rome and Greece to crown luminairies. We feel a better use is make a minty refreshing tea that can be enjoyed both hot and cold. As it is not a true tea but a tisane it is naturally caffeine free.
Personally, I have used Peppermint for years to help with digestive problems. It can help with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, help ease nausea and vomitting and ….excuse me!…. help with flatulence. When dealing with our other end it can help with bad breath and reduce heartburn.
Peppermint tea is good to have when fighting a cold as it clears congestion and reduces coughing.
And if that’s not enough to convince you to have a cup of Peppermint Tea in this mad busy world it will help reduce your stress levels.
