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. Generally (dependent upon weather patterns) the second cut (takes place during mid/end August) is the most flavorful, coolest and most pungent, (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 flow of bile to 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 summer's day. Peppermint is believed to be a hybrid species that evolved from spearmint and watermint. However, peppermint has been around so long its genealogy is obscure. It has been reported 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. Peppermint is a primary ingredient in remedies used in the relief of gastrointestinal disorders, headaches, and local aches and pains. Because of its bright, pungent flavor, peppermint is often used to mask the unpleasant taste of various medicines. Peppermint tea is made from both the leaves and the flowers. As a hot tea it is cool and refreshing, as an iced tea the menthol content produces a pleasantly chilling taste sensation. Peppermint is used extensively is various recipes. One our favorites for 2 people are: Banana Mint Slush. 1 ripe Banana, 1 teaspoon of Peppermint leaves, Grated peel of 1 lime, 1 cup of skim milk, 5 ice cubes Place the banana in a blender and puree until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until slushy. Serve immediately. [Less than 100 calories]

Love this Tea! It is my favorite. I am a school teacher and this is a great pick me up throughout the morning. Tried it for the first time while visiting your location in Troy been hooked ever since. It is also nice cold on a hot South Carolina afternoon. (Posted on 5/9/2016)

Really not much to say about this... If you love peppermint, then you will probably love this drink, as it has the crisp peppermint flavor that most of us love. If you try it, I am sure you won't be disappointed! (Posted on 4/27/2016)
Great Mint TeaReview by Mark
I love this tea! Hot or iced, it is great. We make a pitcher of this iced in the summer. Mix a shot of tea, with a shot of simple syrup, a shot of tequila, and a shot of lime juice for a delicious refreshing cocktail. Enjoy. (Posted on 1/3/2014)
