Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is a hybrid mint, a cross between the watermint (Mentha aquatica) and spearmint (Mentha spicata). The plant, indigenous to Europe, is now widespread in cultivation throughout all regions of the world.
The Peppermint Plant
The leaves of Peppermint are short but distinctly stalked (2 inches or more in length and 3/4 to 1 1/2 inches broad). The entire plant has a very characteristic fragrance, due to the volatile oil present in all its parts.
Peppermint has a high menthol content, and is often used as a flavoring in tea, ice cream and confectionery.
Peppermint is good to assist in raising internal heat and introducing perspiration, although its strength is soon exhausted. It also helps in overcoming slight cold.
The Tao of Tea
Like the Tao, the art of tea is universal. We began our work with tea in 1997 to be a connecting thread for tea culture. Practicing the art on a daily basis in our teahouses in Portland, Oregon, we are a group of tea enthusiasts from different backgrounds and cultures. We travel, learn, take delight and seek to offer pure leaf teas with great flavor, artistry and soul.
Steep one level teaspoon of the leaf in twelve ounces water at 175F. Steep for four minutes.
