The Story Behind our Best Peppermint Tea Bags
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is an aromatic, rhizomatous, perennial plant belonging to the Lamiaceae family. It's a natural hybrid of watermint (Mentha aquatica) and spearmint (Mentha spicata).
The herb can grow to heights between 30 and 90 centimetres (12 and 35 inches), thriving in various climates. However, it was originally native to Europe and the Middle East.
Most famously, Peppermint contains three potent essential oils: Menthol, menthone and menthyl acetate. This is where the Tea made from the leaves gets its distinctive character.
Harvesting typically occurs shortly before the plant blooms, which tends to be from June to August. Picking in the morning produces the best results because it is when the plant has its highest oil content.
