Peppermint Leaves - Certified Organic

$2.95



Indigenous to Europe and Asia, peppermint, Mentha Piperita, has been naturalized in North America and can even be found growing wild near streams and in other wet sites. It is believed to be hybrid species that evolved from spearmint and watermint. Earliest recordings have peppermint being used by the ancient Hebrews and it has been discovered in 3,000 year old Egyptian tombs. Because peppermint is a hybrid, it’s considered an asexual sterile plant that produces no seeds and reproduces only vegetatively by spreading by its rhizomes ( this is an underground, horizontal plant stem capable of producing the shoot and root systems of a new plant).

Peppermint tea is a tisane (infusion) of peppermint and is sometimes referred to as mint tea. Doublemint tea is a tea made from blending spearmint and peppermint leaves. Peppermint is versatile, which makes it very popular as it mixes well with other herbal teas and some non-herbal teas. It can be consumed either hot or cold and many prefer it as a bedtime tea.

The best peppermint comes from the northwestern United States where the pure, moist mountain air of the spring and early summer growing season gives our peppermint some of the highest volatile oil counts of any member of the mint family. Depending on that years growing conditions the second cut, which typically occurs during the middle to end of August is considered the most flavorful. Our peppermint is a 1st grade Autumn harvest.

The flavor profile of our Peppermint tea is fresh, cool and pungent with hints of menthol.

The liquor is a bright greenish yellow.

No caffeine.
