Net Wt: 22 lbs. (10 kg.)
Our Oregon-grown peppermint brews a sharp, refreshing, caffeine-free herbal tea with peppermint's signature aroma. Peppermint is most commonly known as a flavor in toothpastes, confections, gum, etc. The sharp and refreshing character of peppermint has given it a reputation as a mental refresher and it also has been used to ease stomach ailments, nausea, and headaches. More scientific evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of peppermint for these uses.
For those trying to decide between peppermint and spearmint, peppermint is slightly more mentholated than spearmint (which is also known solely as mint tea).
Use 1 teaspoon of tea leaves per 8 oz of water. Steep in just boiled water that is around 200°F-212°F, for 3-5 minutes or longer, depending on taste.
