by berg

small children get very sick from peppermint tea? you said it was great for them every other article says that it causes real problems...

Comment - Strong peppermint tea may cause a choking sensation in very small children and babies. You need to use caution - weak peppermint tea is okay for older children and young adults.

How to make herbal tea from dried spearmint and peppermint leaves

by bre

I grew spearmint, orange mint, chocolate mint, and lemon mint on my deck this summer in pots. I trimmed the leaves about every two weeks. Put the leaves on paper towels, on cookie sheets, and let them dry. Now I have all these dried leaves, do I buy green tea and mix them to make tea?

Peppermint tea question

Tea Question

How strong is peppermint tea?

Answer
Ahhh peppermint tea! One of my absolute favorite herbal teas. Thanks for asking this question as many people think that peppermint tea is overwhelming.

It does not have to be. Steep for just a short time 1-2 minutes and remove the peppermint tea bag or loose tea from your tea pot. This is the best way to start - with a weaker peppermint tea rather than one that is too strong. If you find it too weak, you simply increase the steeping time until you figure out what is best for you.

One of my favorite things is peppermint tea with a wedge of lemon and honey. It is just delicious and great after a big meal like Thanksgiving dinner.

Your guests will love it and it is caffeine free which in my opinion is nicer than a coffee after dinner which tends to keep me awake. Peppermint tea is often served with a neutral dessert. Nothing to sweet. Perhaps a white cake with real whip cream and fruit. You will love it - give it a try.
