Peppermint Leaf

Mentha Peperita

  • Rank

    Better than some mint teas I have tried, but just doesn't hit the mark mintiness wise for me.

A premium Peppermint leaf tisane generally used as a digestive aid and to refresh the palate. Perfect after a meal.

Dried Peppermint tastes different to fresh mint tea. What you lose in the freshness you gain in a caramel warmth which contrasts with the abundant mintiness.

Peppermint is a great way to soothe IBS, upset stomach, and colonic spasms. It can help with flatulence so have a cup after a particularly rich meal! It can be used safely for children suffering from colics.
