Delicious, refreshing and caffeine-free, the health benefits of peppermint tea (or more correctly, a peppermint infusion) are acknowledged the world over.

An herb prized for its medicinal benefits and distinctive flavor, peppermint (Mentha piperata) is a naturally occurring hybrid of spearmint (M. spicata) and water mint (M. aquatica). Unlike other mints, however, peppermint contains in its healing volatile oil the powerful therapeutic ingredient menthol, as well as menthone, menthyl acetate and some 40 other compounds.

As well as being delicious, peppermint is known to soothe and relieve a range of health complaints and weaknesses, including irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, indigestion and heartburn, congestion, and stress.
