Dried peppermint leaves make a minty, refreshing drink that is highly satisfying both hot and cold. A native of the Mediterranean, peppermint leaves were often used to crown luminaries in ancient Greece and Rome. It continues to be revered for its refreshingly light aroma, as well as its natural, caffeine-free taste. If you have yet to try gourmet peppermint tea, you'll be pleasantly surprised by its superior flavor. Our organic peppermint tea is made with the finest US grown organic peppermint.

Peppermint is a herb that naturally contains no caffeine. Quite often peppermint tea is consumed after meals as the oils in the mint may stimulate the flow of bile to the stomach and helps to possibly relieve gas pains. Additionally, peppermint sweetens the breath, supports healthy digestion and proper stomach acid balance. An interesting and tingling way to use peppermint is to place a handful of peppermint leaves in your bath water which may possibly lower your body temperature - perfect for cooling fevered skin or after working on a hot summers day.

This is a naturally caffeine free organic loose tea.
