From Zen Tea Life

Pungent, cool, fresh, menthol. Infused leaf is bright green, tending yellowish. This peppermint comes from the northwestern United States. The pure, moist mountain air of the spring and early summer growing season gives this peppermint some of the highest volatile oil counts of any member of the mint family. Generally the second cut (takes place during mid/end August) is the most flavorful, coolest and most pungent. Quite often peppermint is consumed after meals as the oils stimulate the flow of bile to the stomach and helps relieve gas pains. Additionally, it has been reported that peppermint sweetens the breath and calms digestive system, plus it helps hearburn, stomach ache and nausea.

Origin : Washington State, USA
Preparation : 1 heaping teaspoon, 95C(203F) water, 5min

From Ontario to California, this must be a record — 6 days to receive a tea package from the wonderful Leafhopper :)

My housemate requested last night a cup of peppermint tea, so I used the opportunity to break into the box of goodies. It’s a sweet, herbaceous peppermint with plenty of menthol kick. I thought it must be that NW US peppermint and reading the description, it is! Peppermint grown in Washington is my favorite because it never tastes muddy or stewed even with boiling water and long steep times.

Thanks for the nightcap, Leafhopper.

Yay! Your teas arrived—and in record time! I’m glad you liked the peppermint. Now, if I could only find something similar in the wide world of peppermint teas out there… I’ll have to try your Two Leaves and a Bud peppermint soon!

derk

Yes, I’m so excited to try everything you sent, especially the teas from Lochan since I’ve been feeling a pull toward Darjeeling lately. I hope you find Two Leaves and a Bud a suitable peppermint :)

Ya, WA and OR peppermint is the top-tier of peppermint.

Leafhopper

I’m glad you’re happy with the teas I sent. I was worried I’d included too many roasted oolongs.

derk

Never worry! I try it all because I love variety and you never know when you’ll find a gem through somebody else’s kindness.

Flyawabirdie included in her Christmas gift a whopping 50g rather than a sample. Wow! Thanks so much for introducing this to me.

By smelling the dry leaf beforehand I knew this would be a good one. This is one of the freshest – if not the freshest – peppermint teas I’ve ever had. It’s so strong, it’s as if I had been chewing a Dentyne Ice gum (which is my go-to gum for mint power). I even feel the cooling effect in the throat. I’m keeping this is mind for a re-stock when I run out.
