Packaging Options
  • Peppermint is a herb, and therefore as with most herbal tea, is naturally caffeine free.  Peppermint is often consumed after meals to aid digestion.  The oils in peppermint help relieve gas pains, sweeten your breath, and aid the relief of heartburn, stomach ache, and nausea.  It has been around for so long its exact genealogy is obscure, but it's believed to be a hybrid species that evolved from spearmint and water mint.  It was used by the Egyptians over 3,000 years ago and was cultivated as a source of menthol. Peppermint tea is a cool and refreshing beverage after meals or before bedtime.  It also produces a chilling taste sensation when taken over ice.
