Peppermint Tea Perks
It may refresh with lilting minty moments and fresh-as-a-daisy feels, but peppermint tea has more pep than you think!
What is peppermint tea?
Made from the dried leaves of the peppermint plant, peppermint teas are technically herbal tisanes often referred to as herbal teas, but this super chilled-out icy-spicy brew doesn’t mind what you call it.
The perky cup of peppermint tea has a reputation for being a cup-half-full kind of tea, one that has an uplifting vibe famous for brightening your day! Peppermint tea’s active ingredient is menthol, which is what defines this cool character as having a subtly sweet side albeit prone to a bold approach and some ultra smooth moves.

If you’re a dingle-dangle dunker you’ll find peppermint tea bags can hang around for 2-3 minutes steeping in 100°C hot water. Boiled, dunked, dangled, brewed… and your refreshing cup of peppermint tea is made!
