Loose Leaf Mint Tea
Soothing, Cooling, Refreshing!
So It’s Just Peppermint, huh?
Actually, there are up to 20 species of plants and a large number of hybrids that may or may not be in the mint family. (There’s some controversy among scientists.) Some of the most common–and the ones CommuniTea Center uses in our teas–are spearmint and peppermint.
Mint plants can be found growing naturally on 5 continents, except Antarctica and South America. Most species prefer a moist soil, and they may spread very quickly without restraint.
Whether just-picked or dried, mint leaves have a fresh, sweet flavor, with a cool aftertaste.
What Is Loose Leaf Mint Tea Good For?
Mint tea may soothe an upset stomach or any issues with digestion. Some herbalists recommend it for heartburn. Its refreshing aroma can aid in mental focus. Additionally, it’s reportedly effective for coughing and congestion.
According to Ayurveda, peppermint is a cooling herb, which is perfect if pitta becomes unbalanced. (More on that here.)
