Time of Day
Enjoyed for centuries, peppermint tea’s refreshing, minty flavour remains a classic go-to brew for tea lovers — and for a good reason!
What is peppermint tea?
Peppermint tea is a herbal tea made from the dried leaves of the peppermint plant, a hybrid of water mint and spearmint. A plant once native to Europe, Asia and the Middle East is now widely spread and cultivated worldwide.
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. Peppermint tea is renowned for its crisp, minty flavour that evokes a cooling sensation due to its menthol content. But rest assured, it still has a subtly sweet side that goes down nice and smooth after a long day.
Whether you’re a long-time fan of peppermint tea or looking to try something new, peppermint tea certainly has a reputation as a cuppa with a delicious, uplifting vibe, sure to perk your spirits for an afternoon pick-me-up.
Is there caffeine in peppermint tea?
You may be surprised to learn there is actually not a drop of caffeine in peppermint tea, making it the perfect cuppa to enjoy at any time of the day! Peppermint leaves and peppermint oils are derived from the peppermint plant, whereas the teas that contain caffeine come from the Camellia sinensis plant. What better beverage to cleanse your palate after dinner?
At T2, we have a specially curated selection of peppermint tea with caffeine for you to start your morning bright and fresh!

How do you make peppermint tea?
Unsure how to brew your tea? We have you covered! If you prefer teabags to loose-leaf tea, you’ll find peppermint tea bags can hang around for 2 to 3 minutes in 100°C hot water. Boiled, dunked, dangled and brewed, your peppermint tea mug is good to go!
If you’re making loose-leaf peppermint tea, follow the steps below:
- Boil the kettle to 100°.
- Add one T2 scoop or teaspoon of loose-leaf peppermint tea per cup to your T2 teapot or tea mug infuser.
- Pour in the boiling water and let it sit for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Remove the infuser and inhale the uplifting aroma!
- Pour your delightful tea blend into your favourite T2 mug or tea cup and enjoy the minty flavour.
