Discover the perfect blend of flavours that pack a punch with T2’s collection of peppermint tea — a delicious beverage with a refreshing scent that helps to soothe, calm and destress.

What is peppermint tea?

Peppermint tea is a refreshing infusion made from the leaves of the peppermint plant, Mentha piperita, a hybrid mint that is a cross between watermint and spearmint. Its active ingredient of menthol gives peppermint tea the cool, crisp taste that it’s known for, with a subtly sweet side that goes down smoothly. This herbal tea is naturally caffeine-free, making it a perfect choice to sip on at any time of the day.

The first known record of peppermint tea was by the Ancient Egyptians, who are said to have found dried peppermint leaves in pyramids in 1000 BC. This aromatic herb has since found its way into modern tea culture, becoming a beloved brew that has stood the test of time.
