Peppermint Tea is a lovely herb that can be used in cooking and baking or added to smoothies. As a tea can be enjoyed hot or over ice, on its own or blended with other herbs or fruit, (e.g. hibiscus flowers or orange slices) to make a refreshing drink.
Peppermint is a great herb to aid digestion. In a small percentage of people, peppermint can be heating and promote perspiration. Therefore, if you are prone to excess heat or hot flushes, it is best to avoid the mint family.
