- Alvita. Natural Herb Teas that are Good for You and the Environment
For more than 75 years, long before it became fashionable, Alvita was championing the profound health-giving properties of herbal teas. We travel to the far reaches of the globe for the finest herbs, the best growers, the most precious sources.
Small wonder that so many consumers trust the Alvita name. Today, it stands for more than 100 different teas, including classic single herb varieties, and our unique Alvita blends. The package you hold in your hand combines ancient herbal wisdom with modern science, and brings to you all the richness and benefits of herbal teas. This philosophy is the very reason why you will find sensible, English pillow style tea bags that are oxygen bleached, not chlorine treated. And why you won't find any strings, tags or staples.
We thank you for choosing our product, but more importantly, we thank you for the trust you've put in the herbal values that we all share.
Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) is a universally-loved and widely-used flavoring found in medicines, toothpaste, candies, liqueurs, and other products. Interest in mints dates form the first century A.D., when it was recorded by the Roman naturalist Pliny. So highly thought of, years later Peppermint was included in a list of plants being taken to the New World. Peppermint's value comes from the mint's volatile oil, which contains menthol. Cosmetically, Peppermint makes a stimulating skin tonic and an invigorating bath. Culinary uses include mint sauces, syrups, vinegar and desserts. Peppermint also makes a refreshing tea, enjoyed both cold or hot. Lemon may be blended, sweetened if desired, or blended with other healthful tea herbs such as Alfalfa or Linden Flowers.
The best way to make a good cup of tea is by the infusion method. Place one tea bag in a cup and add no more than 6 oz of boiling water. Let steep for 3 minutes. Press the bag before removing to enhance the flavor.
Add honey to sweeten.
Peppermint is good for digestion, and soothes the stomach. This tea is strong and has a smooth peppermint taste. Alvita brand appears to be excellent quality, but I wouldn't buy this brand unless I could get the teas at reasonable prices. iHerb has a good price.
Peppermint tea is great first thing in the morning! It wakes the senses and kick starts my day.

Very pepperminty. :) And they definitely soothed my stomach the morning after eating WAY too much and WAY too late into the night. I actually drank 3 or 4 cups of tea that day because when I drank a cup it was so soothing to my stomach. Good stuff.
