It's Day 11 of our Tea Advent Calendar and today's tea is the fresh and aromatic Peppermint!

This herbal tea comes in our handy plastic free tea pyramids. Our peppermint leaves are handled with care to retain freshness, creating an incredibly fresh, purifying cup.

Sharp, fresh, aromatic and cooling with every sip!

Peppermint Tea is one of our most popular teas, some even go as far as saying it's the best peppermint tea on the market (we would agree...)! Peppermint, like a lot of herbal teas, is commonly used to soothe or treat symptoms such as nausea and indigestion. Not being doctors we can't back this up but archaeological evidence shows that it has been used for over 10,000 years. Maybe there is something to it, but we love it for its freshness and tinglyness.

How We Like It

Brew 1 tea pyramid per 200ml water. Infuse in freshly boiled water (98°C) for 3-6 minutes.
