When you're ready to make some of this beneficial tea to enjoy as a beverage or for its topical support, here are some oh-so-simple peppermint tea recipes to get you started. 

Hot Peppermint Tea Recipe

To enjoy the many good things peppermint tea can provide, try this flavorful hot peppermint tea recipe. 

You'll need...

  • 1 peppermint teabag, 1 heaping teaspoon of dried loose-leaf peppermint tea, or a small handful (1 - 2 stalks) of fresh, blemish-free peppermint leaves 
  • 8 oz. (about 250 ml) fresh, delicious water, brought just to the boil
  • Optional additions to taste, such as honey or citrus

If you're harvesting your own fresh peppermint for tea, you'll find some tips here for harvesting, drying, and storing peppermint. 

To make the tea...

  1. If you're using fresh peppermint leaves, rinse the leaves well and then crush them slightly with your hands, the back of a spoon, or a mortar and pestle (this will help to release their lovely fragrance and wonderful beneficial oils).
  2. Add the teabag, loose-leaf tea, or fresh leaves to your favorite cup or mug. (If you're using loose-leaf tea or fresh leaves, an infuser or infuser mug is a great help.)
  3. Cool the just-boiled water slightly (herbal teas are best when steeped in hot, rather than boiling, water), and then add to your cup. 
  4. Cover and steep the fragrant peppermint tea for 5 to 10 minutes (herbal teas improve with longer steeping times - their flavor is enhanced and you'll enjoy their full benefits). Brew fresh leaves a minute or two longer than dried leaves or a teabag.
  5. Remove the teabag or tea leaves from your cup.
  6. Optional - Add extras of choice, such as some organic honey or a squeeze of lemon or lime (or both). 
  7. Enjoy! As you sip, don't forget to inhale deeply to enjoy peppermint's aromatherapy benefits, as well.
