Here at The Natural Health Market, we have found Peppermint Tea to be one of our most popular teas. Similarly to other herbal tea, peppermint tea is often used to treat and soothe a broad range of symptoms throughout the centuries, looking at the archaeological evidence, people have been drinking peppermint tea for over 10,000 years for exactly these reasons.
One of the main reasons we think that peppermint tea is so popular is because of the fresh tingly-ness it provides that can be enjoyed in every cup. Peppermint tea delivers a fresh and zesty flavour; this is probably why it's so widely used in tisane infusions.
Not many people know, but Peppermint is a cross between water mint and spearmint known as Mentha Piperita in the scientific world.
Peppermint is native to Europe, but due to the wide range of uses peppermint is now grown all over the world and is a global commodity, further to this peppermint tea is enjoyed by many in all corners of the globe.
