Peppermint Herbal Tea Recipe

Easy to make with dried organic peppermint, here is what you do:
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Organic Peppermint
  • 8 Ounces of Fresh Boiled Water
Steep the peppermint herbal tea for 3-8 minutes depending on the strength you like. You can increase the quantity to the number of guests or people you are serving.

You can sweeten with honey. Peppermint flavored teas are great to offer your guests after a dinner party. Especially Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner when most of us seem to over eat. It will help everyone and tastes great too.

I often serve peppermint tea with peppermint bark to my guests after a large dinner, and it is always a hit. One of the best pairings for peppermint infused teas is chocolate desserts. A decadent chocolate cake for dessert is simply delicious served with peppermint tea, honey and lemon wedges. It really sets of the chocolate and cleanses the pallate.

Peppermint is also an ingredient in one of our Ayurvedic Teas and is used in ayurvedic healing traditions to treat the digestive tract, reduce stomach problems, cool the body from the inside and reduce sweating.
