One of my first loves of tea was peppermint. It’s awesome for upset stomach, calming nerves, aiding digestion and reducing headaches. I love peppermint tea, especially in the winter time when you just want to warm up.

Peppermint tea can vary in it’s strength and this tea is VERY peppermint’y’. Take note of your steeping time, 30-60 seconds. I steeped for closer to 70 seconds because I generally like my tea stronger, I have to say, it’s a bit too strong. AND I just burned my mouth. Perfect.

If you get the chance in the Summer buy fresh mint or grow It (I Grow it indoors in Winter) bruise it and put a large bunch in a tea pot ant pour on the steaming hot water to steep strong. In Lebanon Egypt etc.this is served with lots ant lots of sugar in small glasses for hours. Keep adding water. I grow 6 organic mint varieties.(pineapple,orange,apple,banana,chocolate,speermint)
