History

Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is a universally-loved and widely used flavoring found in medicines, toothpaste, candies, liqueurs, and other products. Interest in mints dates from the first century A.D., when it was first recorded by the Roman naturalist Pliny. So highly thought of, years later Peppermint was included in a list of plants being taken to the New World.

Peppermint’s value comes from the mint’s volatile oil, which contains menthol. Cosmetically, Peppermint makes a stimulating skin tonic and an invigorating bath. Culinary uses include mint sauces, syrups, vinegar and desserts.

Peppermint also makes a refershing tea, enjoyed both cold or hot. Lemon may be blended, sweetened if desired, or added with other healthful tea herbs such as Alfalfa or Linden flowers.

Went to a TEA TALK tonight…sooooo not what I expected. If you want the ‘extended dance mix version’ of my time there PM me and I will share it. In the meantime…I did take tasting notes on the ones we sampled.

The first one was this Peppermint.

You know I love my Peppermint. This was…eeeeeh…so-so, but also the highest rated one for the evening…IMO.

It was slightly murky and a light brown with green hue for color. Nose was NOT a hyped up version of Peppermint but still a fair amount paired with an ‘ishy’ (no, not fishy…ISHY) Medicine-E smell. The taste was exactly like the smell. However, the after taste was more pleasant than I thought it would be.

Altho I drank 2 cups…I wouldn’t buy for my stock…

Lori

Hmm..it didn’t seem like you got to try any great teas…

TeaEqualsBliss

nope…they were all herbal tisanes…sigh…

Rabs

I clicked “like” because of two things 1. Ishy and 2. It’s like sending you a heart because of the seemingly sad teas you experienced all in a row.

TeaEqualsBliss

Thanks Rabs!!! :)

Rabs

You’re welcome! :) I was being such a goofball last night – and you were posting some of the funniest notes that I’ve read, and then it hit me that you’d had all of these teas in a row. That was horrifying :(
